This is for Day #11 of the '4 Sketches, 20 Days' Challenge oer at the Apron Strings Blog. Today the challenge was to 'flip the left-hand side upside down and us the title space for more photos'. I added 3 smaller photos in that area.
Really liking this challenge of using a sketch over and over again, but in different ways. I have 7 grandkids plus a couple vacation albums to scrap so I've been trying to use the same sketch for different albums.
A 2-pager for grandson Marcus's album of playing at the playground with his cousins, April 2011. I used some older stash here......Cosmo Cricket papers and diecuts along with some newer KI Memories Glitz Words.

This is for Day #7 of the '4 Sketches, 20 Days' Challenge over at the Apron Strings Blog. This is the last day we'll use the PageMap for this week and the challenge was to just use 1 side of it. I chose the left side for my layout.

This is for Day #5 of the '4 Sketches, 20 Days' Challenge oer at the Apron Strings Blog. The twist on the PageMap today was to 'rotate one half of the layout'. In preparing for this challenge, I used a previous 2-page layout I had done using the sketch and flipped each side around til I came up with this design. I rotated the left side layout one turn to the right.
Photos of all the grandkids dressed up for Halloween. They can't all get together for trick or treating so they dress up for Brady's birthday on the 24th. I dug into some older stash for this one! I used the My Mind's Eye 'Nightlight' line along with some Daisy D's Ribbon, Making Memories Chipboard Alphas, Brads, and Epoxy Buttons.
This is for Day #4 of the '4 Sketches, 20 Days' Challenge over at the Apron Strings Blog. The twist on the PageMap of the week was "to re-orient two photos....if they're shown as horizontal, make them vertical or vise-versa." On the right hand page instead of the 2 horizontal photos I added a strip of vertical photos, which worked better with the photos I had.
