New Sketch Blog & Design Team Call

I don't know how everyone else feels about using sketches to create their layouts, but they are an absolute essential for me!  I used to literally spend hours staring down at pictures and paper trying to figure out how I should arrange them.  Now that I have two small children, I just cannot be agonizing over the design of my layout.  There are way too many photos to be scrapped and hardly any moments of time to do so. So when I discovered that there were sketch blogs and challenge sites out there, I was ecstatic! I've even started designing my own sketches and am part of the sketch team at the Colorful Creations blog.  So for those reasons I was excited to discover a brand new sketch blog called Let's Get Sketchy!  They're currently running a design team and sketch team call, both of which I am submitting for.  If you have a chance, go check out their new blog and the current mini challenge that's running for their debut.  You can find them here --> Let's Get Sketchy!

For the call, you must use the below sketch:

And here's my interpretation:

I used a picture of Paolina from her newborn photo shoot...it's so hard to believe that was over a year and a half ago! My husband got a huge kick out of the title...which I thought was perfect for either of our kids really. You see, while I'm an American citizen, my husband is a Mexican citizen...so doesn't that make our kids "imported and domestic" lol??


  1. Your take on the sketch is absolutely beautiful!

  2. So pretty! Love the title work and all the details on this one!

  3. Aww great LO!! Wonderful picture and paper choice!!

  4. Congratulations! I too made the B team and am your newest follower! I look forward to seeing your layouts! My blog is www.kerripowell.blogspot.com

  5. Can't wait to start creating with everyone on the team at Let's Get Sketchy! Congrats to both of us!
