Layout Sketch Challenge at Cornish Heritage Farms!

We are starting a sketch challenge at Cornish Heritage Farms! Every other week we will be hosting a challenge with a sketch that will be created by either Lesley or Julia. I have to admit that working off of a sketch is not my strong suit, so this is going to be a real challenge for me! I think that you can learn so much about other designers approaches to a page from their sketches, and this teaches a lot about balance and scale. Something that I think I can never study enough!

Here is the sketch that Lesley created:

And here is my version of it:

The paper and journaling card is Anna Griffin and Making Memories, I used the small dot backgrounder in Versmagic Aspen Mist. The bold curls by Kim Hughes and the sentiment is from the Rummage Bin by Lesley Langdon are inked with Black Soot Distress Ink. Ribbons are from Making Memories, Flowers are from Prima, Brads are from American Crafts and have Doodlebug glitter on them, Title letters are by American Crafts.

The girls from the design team have a lot of eye candy to share with you, so pop on over to their blogs and check them out!

Also, Lisa has a huge review of this months gallery, so don't miss that! The backgrounder blitz brought some incredible inspiration into the gallery, the projects are amazing!

After you are done with that, grab your stamps and scrapping goodies and meet us at the farm! We are celebrating National Scrapbook Day on Saturday from 12-3 EST. Kim and I will be hostessing a chat and Lesley has another sketch and some other great things in store! There will be give-aways and fun will be had by all!
Hope you will be able to play!
