This week our scrapbook sketch is a 9" x 12" layout featuring a wide strip of patterned paper at the top, a vertical photo near the center, and journaling and a title on the right side of the page. Our notebook sketch has a title over journaling on the left page and a grid of four photos and simple embellishments on the right. And our pocket page sketch features a 3" x 4" photo with a small embellishment in the upper right-hand corner and a 3" x 4" title card with a row of enamel dots. Creative Team member KellyNoel is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's notebook sketch! Be sure to follow Kelly to see more of her work and keep up with her.

And here's Kelly's take on our notebook sketch:
I was so excited to see the sketches for this week. I was inspired by each of them, but I'm hopelessly addicted to any kind of grid design so Maggie's notebook sketch caught my eye right away and I knew that was the sketch I was going to use to inspire my project. I kept the grid of photos similar, just grouped 3 photos instead of 4 and added a blank space for embellishing. I had some leftover chipboard pieces from the Expedition scrapbook kit that were begging to be used, so I grouped them together along with some of the wood veneer pieces from the kit, as well.
My title and journaling are similar to the sketch, but since I adapted the sketch to fit an 8.5" x 11" background, I moved the title and journaling to directly underneath my photo grid. I love how simple this layout is, but how it tells a story and includes 3 photos! It came together quickly and easily, which was an added bonus!
