October 23rd Sketch

Hi again everyone! So nice to see you here for your weekly dose of inspiration. :)

Here is Krissy's fabulous sketch for this week - a double, or is it? :)

Kerry took on the challenge of creating a double layout and has done a fantastic job, I'm sure you'll agree? I love the textural elements she has brought to the layout, entitled 'Footy'.

Next up Ilona tackled the sketch as a 6" x 12" layout, with fabulous results - as shown in her Sunshine Girl layout, where not every space is a photo. Ilona created two layouts so if you check out the gallery at CIS, she may well share her second LO there for more inspiration. :)

And lastly, here is my layout for this week - I adapted the sketch to create a 12"x12" layout using some pics of my baby girl taken at the weekend. It was amazing for the whole family and ds to see. :) I've used the gorgeous Earth Love papers from CIS - just love the fall tones of this range!

Take care, and happy scrapping (remember to use the code octsketch to upload your layouts to the gallery and be in the running for this months sketch comp prize).
