Sketch 23-12 and Kiddies are gone..

Well from the sounds of things, everyone arrived home safe and sound last night. It was bittersweet saying goodbye to my little compadres yesterday morning but all good things must come to an end I guess. One of the nicest things that happened yesterday morning was that when I said, "Who loves ya, Baby?" Gabby replied (with enthusiasm), "Nana!"...  yeah, we'll miss them!

Over at Sketches: Creatively Yours today, we're featuring sketch #23-12. Ali writes:

Well, hello there!! ;) So happy to see you again!

Here we are, already time for a new fun, free weekly Sketch!

This 12x12" layout sketch was created with some of my summer 2011 pictures in mind. It features a horizontal embellishment, "bracketed" journaling and a set of 3 photos in varying sizes.The sketch shows the photos matted, but you can do your LO with or without mats. Remember, scrapbook sketches are just a "jumping off" point! Use them to create something you love that reflects YOU and YOUR tastes.

I thought I'd include her write up because I've had some friends who look at my blog wonder how I interpret the sketch the way I do. Well, it's just that I use the sketch as a jumping off point and make it work for me. It's not something I follow directly, but take elements of it to inspire my own creativity. I hope that explains it somewhat!

Anyway, here's sketch #23-12:

and here's what I did with it!

Gabby has been banans for bandaids this past summer, so I wanted a layout that depicted her passion for the plaster.
I hope you'll take a peek at what the rest of the team did with  here! for such a simple sketch, it has a lot of interpretations this week!
Enjoy and have a scrap-happy day!


  1. That's so funny! I remember my kiddos going through the Band-Aid phase, too. "Band-Aids make it better!" :D

  2. SO the pinwheels!
