First Wednesday with Melanie!

Melanie Jarocki is here today with a couple of fun layouts using the Sketches for Scrapbooking books.  (note...I will have more information about this on tomorrow's post!)

(using the Noah Collection)
I used a Sketch Support design for this layout. Originally, it was a two-page sketch but I only used the left side of the sketch for this single page. The journaling is hidden in the "About This Boy" card, tucked behind the photo. I used Maraschino twine from the The Twinery for extra accents on the page. 

(using the Exit Here collection)

Two-page layouts are my favorite. So the Sketch Support book is awesome for me! I used the Exit Here collection for this fun page about my kids enjoying their grandparents' basement.  For extra dimension and detail on the page, I stitched between the photographs. I also added a little grass fringe to the house cut-out.

Be sure to visit Melanie's blog for more great layouts and projects!  And before I forget I need to announce the winners from the Glue Arts Cross Promo swap!
