Life is Beautiful in Edinburgh

The latest sketch challenge from Let’s Get Sketchy team is another one for the “go-to sketches” Smashbook I keep on my scrap table. It has my scrapbook kryptonite – multiple photos. As much as I love the clean design of a single photo layout, I secretly love the busy-ness and fun of a multi photo layout so much more. I want to be a bit overwhelmed with memories I guess eh!

Here is a peek at the Let’s Get Sketchy November 15th Sketch Challenge:

In 2013 my sister Shar (another partner here at Scrapstorian) and I travelled to Scotland to walk the Great Glen Way then whirlwind through Edinburgh for a day. While I am almost done scrapbooking the trip, a big chunk of the photos I have left to do are from our Edinburgh a day. This 3 photo layout from Let’s Get Sketchy was a great way to make a dent in the picture pile,

In fact a double dent … I created this layout:

Then carried on to create another, as a mirror to the first one – and voila a one page sketch challenge turns into a double page layout that I am totally digging!  Here is the second layout:

Now finally, a little side by side view:

Thanks Let’s Get Sketchy – this turned out fun x 2!

Pop over to Let’s Get Sketchy next for loads of inspiration from their design team, and to play with their twice monthly challenges.


The following supplies excitedly participated in this layout: Bazzill Cardstock (Avalanche)Simple Stories Beautiful Collection; Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue; silver and gold enamel dots from my stash; and this amazing gold string from my stash
