Happy Labor Day!

I hope you are enjoying your 3 day weekend! We are heading out to the inlaws in just a bit for lunch and to celebrate Grandpa's birthday. The weather has finally cooled off just a bit and it's almost cold in the mornings! I love this time of the year! Our own designer Valerie Allen created the sketch this month! As most of you know by now I rarely do single-page layouts and it's even more rare for me to just put a single photo on a page but I had to try! Here's the sketch:
And so I created my first page knowing I'd have to get at least 4 (I had 6) more photos on the second page. I thought I'd keep it pretty simple and just incorporated the design elements onto the second page as well! I just used a marker to outline the area although I was tempted to sew. Not tempted enough to do it though!
So, how do you transform a single page sketch into a double page layout? Look for some double page sketches coming soon!


  1. so pretty! I also used the sketch with this half of the kit and I LOVE how different our pages are!! I love how you turned it into a two pager!

  2. That is so awesome how you two paged it! Now I want to scraplift your layout:)

  3. if you do Val, I wanna see it!! And I'm off to find your's Lisa, can't wait to see it!
