TWO 2-page layouts using sketches!

My favorite magazine is Creating Keepsakes. I started reading the magazine over five years ago. I love all the editors and the layouts are fantastic. I love following the magazine online too!

For this week's 'Weekly Warm-Up' the blog is featuring a Becky Higgins sketch. It happens to be one of my favorites from the summer magazine. I am not usually a huge fan of sketches, but this one was super fun! Here is the sketch:

I came up with TWO versions of this sketch. One is using pictures from my niece's 1st birthday and the other is from a recent camping trip.

Party Layout:
CTMH Desert Sand Cardstock
CTMH Heartfelt Die Cuts
My Mind's Eye Patterned paper (the plaid is my absolute favorite paper this summer!)
K&Co. Rubons, Gittered Die Cuts, Flocked stickers, Adhesive Chipboard
Jolee's Boutique Cupcake
Other: gel pen--white

Summer Adventure Layout:
Hambly Woodgrain Overlay
7gypsies Mountain vacation Stickers
Cosmo Cricket Mr. Happy Camper Paper
Creative Memories Transparent stickers
CTMH HeartFelt Die Cuts
CTMH Chipboard and Stickease
CTMH Cardstock Desert Sand

If ya'll have an tips on photographing 2-page layouts, I would love to hear them! Cards are way easier!! Anyway, I hope the quality is decent and feel free to click on the image to see it larger and with more details!
