This week our scrapbook sketch is a 8.5" x 11" layout featuring a large circle photo and a centered design. Our card sketch also has a large circle element front and center. And our pocket page sketch features a two 4" x 6" embellished photos. Creative Team member Kelly Noel is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's scrapbook sketch!

And here's Kelly's take on our scrapbook sketch:
I was drawn to the sketch of Anna-Maria's layout immediately. I love the simple, graphic design and I'm always a fan of circles! I chose this photo of my son, Brady, and my niece who share a birthday. It's a story I've documented before, but I love that this was the 10th birthday that they've shared together—it felt like a big deal this year. I printed my photo a little larger than I originally wanted to so I altered the design just a bit by placing my title and journaling directly underneath the photo.
I layered the pink paper on top of this month's gorgeous floral specialty paper and placed both pieces onto a piece of white cardstock to border the layout. To finish the layout, I added a few simple embellishments—washi tape, an ampersand ticket and three copper asterisks.
