Heather's Sketch & Template #13

Hi everyone! It's Heather, and I'm back to share my last sketch and template here on Ideas For Scrapbookers. I was one of the original contributing artists when Pam first started this blog so I'm really sad to leave. I've had a wonderful time working with Pam and the other contributors have been amazing as well. I'll miss posting and hanging out with everyone. This will be the last sketch I post here. It's sketch #13. 

I based the sketch on this paper page that I made with the March Scraptastic Club kit and add on called "Celebrate Life". I used the octagon shape as a background because I wanted to try something new. The pinwheels are also a new thing for me. I've never made them before, but they were super simple to make. 

I sent this sketch to quite a few of my talented friends. They definitely didn't disappoint me! Nancy emailed me this fabulous layout about a fundraising concert that she attended with her husband. I love that she made this layout with some of her older paper. The bracket shape she used in place of the octagon looks great! 

Lesley contributed this adorable layout about her grandson's first train ride. The train embellishments are awesome. The photos really make this page stand out because you can see the wonder and amazement in his eyes. She capped her page off with some really cool rosette embellishments. 

This sunshine filled layout is by Dolores. She used some really special pictures from a recent family gathering. I really love the color combination on this page. The sun peeking from behind the octagon is a perfect way to draw attention to that corner. A very inspiring, happy layout! 

This beautifully distressed page is by Vicky! I love all of the paper tearing and the butterflies look like they are about to fly right off of the page. I think the chicken wire looks fantastic too because it makes the page more masculine. 

This last layout is mine. It's a digital page that I made with Jenni Bowlin Studio's Homespun Collection. I used the template, but I deleted the octagon layer. It gives the design a more graphic feel. 

Thank you very much for contributing to this post ladies! It has been a pleasure to work with each of you and I won't forget the friendships that I've made here.
