I just completed and submitted my first sketch challenge. On the message board that I'm a member of, we were given a sketch by Becky Fleck to base our page on. The couple in the picture are good friends of my husband and I. My scanner bed isn't big enough, so I had to take a picture of it. The quality is bad and doesn't do the page justice, but I did the best I could. I had a lot of fun with this challenge. It was a little difficult since I mainly make cards. I'd like to start making layouts more often. I recently bought a magazine called Easy Patterns for Scrapbooking (a special issue from Creating Keepsakes). It has awesome patterns that allow you to create several layouts, cards, tags, etc. from each pattern. I'm anxious to try out some of the patterns.
