Sketch #7

Here's another of the layout sketches I drew on vacation.  

I realize this is Sketch #7 and that yesterday I showed Sketch #4.  I number the sketches in
the order I make them, not the order they appear here. I'll show #5 and #6 when I can.

I used the sketch for the page about our 8th anniversary celebration in Napa.  Here's my rough draft:

When I make a page, even from a sketch, the first thing I do is lay the pictures on the paper the way I think it's going to go, then check for any problem areas.  In this case, I wasn't happy with the large white space above our heads in the focal photo.  I ended up adding three small rub-ons (a curved set of dots, a heart, and the word AMAZING) and it totally changed the feel of the page.  Here's the finished page.

I just realized 4 of the 7 pictures are of food!  I checked last year's anniversary layout - 12 pictures and not one of them has any food.  I guess you can't really visit Napa without eating, photographing, and scrapping some outstanding food!


  1. I loveeeeeeeeeee this!!!! I love the AMAZING on the photo and loving the heart!!!!!

  2. I love that you added the rub-ons! Such a sweet layout. That is one cute photo of the 2 of you!
