I'm changing up this blog a bit! I'll be posting sketches but there will be a twist! You have to BLEND the sketch with a song! I love listening to Sirius radio and The Blend station plays a wonderful "blend" of great songs! So I'll be posting a layout and card sketch ON THE 1ST OF EACH MONTH, and along with it 5 songs to choose from to inspire you. You can let the title inspire you or choose a stanza from the song, or even let the theme of the song inspire you!

Looking for Sponsors!

Hi everyone!!! Here's the first layout sketch that the team worked with! I told them I wasn't too crazy about the sketch when created it initially I but I figured I'd send it along to them and see what they could do with it! Well, they totally BLEW ME AWAY!!! Take a look at their awesome creations!!! Wonderful stuff, don't you think!!!

I used digital designs by Krystal Hartley. Using a selection of two of her kits Soleil and Sculpted Glass. The font on the journal tag is Arial.

...And here are a couple that I did...

Thank-you so much Layout Team!!! Your work is inspiring!

Leave a comment and let us know what you think about the sketch and our layouts! We'd love to hear what you think.And, of course, please try the sketch for yourself and tell us where we can see your layout!
