Lasting Memories

This week at Lasting Memories, we have a sketch challenge.  I love using sketches as a starting point, but quite often my layouts look totally different from the original sketch.

This is the sketch:

And this is my take on it:

My layout was also inspired by Scrapbook Fantasies Weekly Challenge # 27: Create a layout using patchwork as your inspiration.   My background circle and side border are made from scraps (Bo Bunny, Echo Park, Scenic Route, Dream Street) "patchworked" together using machine stitching:

Other materials:
