More Monday!

Howdy fellow blogophiles! I am thinking that this Monday I am going to share with you a layout I made from the Authentique sketch challenge posted first Saturday of the month.  If you have read my blog of late, you will know I am a big fan of this fledgling company with big ideas and a heart of gold.

I decided to use some more of my Journey collection to make this layout about my Bo-Bo and my parents 'shug' Bella. Bo is very young here and Bella is being very tolerant!

First, I turned the sketch on it's side. Then I machine stitched the outside and the margins between the patterns. I also placed a rounded corner piece under each photo to seperate it from the pattern visually.

I also made this card to go with the card sketch! Same collection , who can blame me?!

The nice thing about sketches is that they can be used as a jump off point for your creativity. You can stick as close to the sketch as you like or use elements of it for your design.

Thanks Authentique! I look forward to MORE of your inspiration next week with the colour challenge!

Til then keep doing what you love!
