Sketch To Scrapbook Page.

Now you know I love working with sketches and sometimes I stick close to the design and other times I twist and turn my page elements to suit the photo's and my overall taste.
Today I have a page to show you that I started using Shimelle's sketch that she has posted on her blog.
Now the photo's I was originally going to use were portrait but then I changed my mind as they didn't really match my papers (sometimes it's quicker to change photo's than to rummage around trying to change papers).

I have added quite a few elemements to my page that don't apear on Shimelle's sketch but that's the fun of simple sketches - you can add to it without thinking you have strayed too far from the original.

Instead of hearts I have butterflies (I think Shimelle will aprove!).
Along the edge of my page I added some of the elements from the sheet of stickers that I bought to go with the papers.

Off now to work on a challenge that my friend Helen and I have set each other - to scrap a photo that was taken over the Christmas holidays. Hope you have a fun day too.


  1. I love how you interpreted this simple sketch. Your layout is lovely.

  2. I love how you changed up Shimelle's check to make it your own. Very nice color combinations and embellishments.

  3. Fabulous layout! I love the touch of sunshine and happy colors!!!
