Layout Sketch June #2

Friday, June 15, 2007

I swear I totally forgot today was the 15th! Where are the days going? Got totally sidetracked with stuff. Anyway this month I decided to offer a bonus layout sketch. Usually I only do one a month, with the odd bonus thrown in for good measure. So back in March (I think it was March, definately a while ago) my friend Rach sent me a rough sketch and I kinda played with it, and made it into this!

And yep the 8.5 x 11 version is available too!

You can download both templates HERE with full layered psd, a jpg of each and individual .png files! Remember to hook me up in the comments (or email) if you use the sketch, I love to come check them out! Here is my layout:

I sent the sketch out to the girls and they came up with some interesting takes on it, which rocks! Love how everyone took it and made it their own! Especially Renee, doing a card! Well done girls awesome work!

Oh my the star is just too cute with all its points. Love the various takes on your design with the various colors & patterns. So cute with the various changes: A dog in the 1st along with a rectangular center substituted for the oval. Each in its own way unique, yet your design is entirely visible to the eye. The last design uses larger photos @ the bottom & includes the star's center as part of the backdrop. Another wonderful & different take on your fantastic template. TFS. Leavin LUV!! XOXOXO
