This month I have a sketch challenge for you all, but instead of a 12 x 12" sketch, I have an 8.5 x 11" sketch for you to use instead. (Of course you can adapt this to a larger layout if you wish.)

Here is the sketch...

Sue's Sketch Challenge! Page_m13

Besides using the sketch as the basis for your layout, you are also required to keep your layout SIMPLE. That is, keep your embellishments to a minimum so the photo remains the focal point of your layout. (Despite how easy that may sound, it is not always easy to design an effective layout using minimal embellishments.)

Here is my sample layout for you...

Entries for this challenge will need to be uploaded to the correct folder in the gallery by midnight, 31st July.

The winner of this challenge will receive a $15 store voucher from RED EARTH SCRAPPING!!!
If you haven't visited Red Earth Scrapping recently be sure to pop by and check out Helen's gorgeous store! Very Happy

Another one for my A4 album (which usually only receives a new layout once a month thanks to the opening night mini challenge of the cyber crops...)
Your layout is simply divine and the sketch is very cool indeed!

I don't have an album that size Linda, coz mine aren't technically 8.5x11" - I actually do them 8.5x12". (So they still go in my 12x12 albums) There are 2 reasons I do them this size - the first is that I think they actually look more balanced and the second is that I am too lazy to cut the extra bit off!!!

Oh I'm loving a4 layouts at the mo.

The simple part is going to be hard for me- I tend to go nuts with embellishments! But I'm up for the challenge Smile

I love this sketch, Sue, and the awesome job you did using it with your example. Ideas galore are running through my head! I may very well start working on a 8.5 X 11 album since I have several I have been ignoring.

YAY Karen! I hope this will give you a kick-start to get stuck into an 8.5 x 11 album!
I love doing this size - perfect for when you only have a single 6 x 4 pic you want to scrap, plus its usually much faster to finish a page! Very Happy

I actually finished this layout last night - I am going to try and take a pic of it soon, if it ever dries off a bit outside!

ETA - I can't find a folder in the gallery, is there one there, and I'm just not seeing it...wouldn't surprise me LOL

Sorry for the terrible photo. I am having trouble getting my photos from my new camera to my computer. I think there is something wrong with the USB cord. I had to snap a photo using my cell phone and email it to myself!
