1 Sketch, 2 Ways

Here's my latest adventure in stretching a sketch. Layout #1 is a 2-page spread, using a design from Sketches for Scrapbooking, Vol. 2 by Allison Davis. The photos show my family working off Thanksgiving dinner courtesy of my sister's Wii. We'll do just about anything to amuse ourselves and let Phil take pictures of us doing it.
Loved making these little blocks for the title and smaller photos. I wanted to do that again! So...
...I took the second page, flipped it a quarter turn and voila! I now have the template for...
...Layout #2 about the hawk we discovered sitting on our deck one morning last fall.
I got to make these little tags again. And that made me happy.
Do you ever finish and layout and think that was just so much fun, you'd like to do it again? Well, go right ahead!

  2. It's always amazing how a change in orientation and papers can make the same design look totally different! Love the hawk photos!

  3. Those are really neat looking tags - are they cut with a Slice? Can you tell I'm still deliberating over buying one!

    I love those "action shots" - that's a great, fun page.

  10. I like those little blocks too! Great way to use that same sketch turned and get to make more of them. And those are totally fun photos - I need to remember that the time to work off Thanksgiving Dinner is the same afternoon! :>)

  11. Wow - what a great idea! I love using sketches but never did a double page into a single. Love the 'blocks' idea - great way to use up all those brads we all have too!!
