Hey, CTK friends! It's Marsha here today, and I'm excited to share a layout for Sunday Sketch! I enjoy creating with sketches and used this one as a jumping-off point for my page.

Here's a look at the sketch:

This sketch is in an 8.5x11 format, but it was easy to convert it to a Life Crafted spread by separating the design down the middle of the page.

Here's my layout:

This month's All About Me Mini Kit and digitals were perfect for this spread, documenting my current reading obsession. I began by printing digital papers from the kit to use for the page. I followed the sketch by trimming the book print paper and adding strips of it to the center of both pages. Next, I used a circle punch from my stash to cut out circles from the dot patterned paper, trimmed them in half, and stitched them to the page to create the scallop design featured in the sketch. I decided to flip the design and layered a few ephemera pieces from the digitals to replace the smaller photo in the sketch.

I layered a pocket card and a digital patterned paper to create layers behind my photo. The gorgeous florals from the kit were perfect for framing my picture. For the title, I stamped the word "FAVORITE" using the new Storytelling V2 All About Me Stamp and completed the title with Sadie Black Alphabet Puffy Stickers. I added a bit more stamping below the journaling with the Simple Words V5 All About Me Stamp. To complete the page, I added All About Me Word/Phrase stickers from the kit to both pages of the spread. 

I hope you are inspired to make a layout based on this week's sketch! Happy creating!
