Some sketch layouts

I've been playing over at Scrap Boutique this weekend, enjoying the challenges and the chance to step out of my comfort zone just a smidgin...

Liz's sketch was the trickiest thing for me this time, and I had to tweak it a little and squish the elements into the centre to make it work for my photographs. I was really pleased with the layout, even if you have to squint to imagine the original sketch:

The other requirement was to use elements starting with M-A-Y: mine are Making Memories diecuts, Autumn Leaves paper (the green) and yellow. I really love the Glitz patterned paper. It's the first time I've used it and I was thrilled with the result.

Chelsea's speed scrap was also based on a sketch, and this one had to be blue and green, and uploaded within the hour:

Redcliffe Peninsula

And another sketch layout, this time for the monthly Stash Stomper, using lots of stamps:
