Ali has a beautiful sketch posted today at Sketches: Creatively Yours and the design team has added their own personal touches for your inspiration. I expanded this week' sketch for a double-page layout: 

Our trip to Italy was not all sunny skies, as I sprained my foot on our last day in Venice and spent the day we had in Padova at the ER (I'm trying to decide if I should scrap that - without pictures). But sitting at an outdoors cafe in Vicenza, it was really hard to think the trip was completely spoiled - regardless of being on crutches for a week! For this LO I used We R MemoryKeepers - Peep - papers from the  Apron Strings April'11 STBB kit. K&Co. Layered Bright Flowers (left) are also from the kit, while the K&Co. chipboard flower (right) is from my stash. Bazzill cardstock, Thickers, AdornIt mini alphas, Glue Arts adhesive, EK Success scallop border punch, unknown jewels, map from Rick Steves' Italy 2010.Here is the S:CY sketch 08-11:

I expanded the sketch for a 2-pager, so my photo block has 6 photos instead of 4. I also increased the size of the top row of photos and had to adjust the sketch accordingly. I kept the title strip, but moved it behind the photo block. However, the bottom strip was ignored because things got too crowded.

Check out Sketches: Creatively Yours to see the other great projects posted today with the sketch above. S:CY also has a Facebook Page. I hope you can join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
