So let's begin with my first one! I assigned my girls sketches to work from...a couple did and a couple didn't, but I totally used them all. I LOVE sketches for scrapbooking, almost more than I do for cards! It is just a matter of figuring out what pictures have the right number for the sketch and have the "feel" of the sketch. My all time favorite site for scrapbooking sketches is PageMaps....simply fantastic...check it out! This one I played with the sketch a bit...I got the idea in my head that the journaling circle could be the head of a snowman since that was the theme for my page. And I just love it when my husband and son semi coordinate their outfits for the pictures...ok not really, but I love it when it works out randomly! The background was stamped randomly with a snowflake image in Real Red and then in Whisper White ink. The snowman edges were distressed to make him a bit more interesting and I obviously kept my title and journaling outside of his face!
By the way, thanks to all of you that commented on my Pondering post. I am thinking I will try selling them, but I need to actually make some then! So you can look for that in future posts...we shall see how that all works out! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
