From Sketch to Layout (twice)

Sketch's are my most favorite scrapbooking tool.

I get them EVERYWHERE and have a habit of pinning them to my Sketches to Follow Pinterest Board.

For this layout, I started with a sketch from Allison Davis' Sketch Support blog. I like her sketches because she includes cut measurements for each piece if you are inclined to follow the sketch exactly. You can see the original sketch post (and download the printable sketch for yourself) HERE:


The first layout I did was swinging pictures (very OLD pictures) of Jayden's first swing in a car swing in Grandma's backyard:



The second layout was essentially a copy...for Noah. He's QUITE a different boy and his layout reflected his diffference...but close enough for us to have similar pages in their books:



This double layout thing is something I find myself doing often...its not so much that I want to have matching layouts in their books as that I find myself with very similar photos (and I'm so far behind that I can do them at once!)

do you use sketches? How do you store yours? Where do you get them?  I would love to know if you use them and if you have a method for keeping them all together.

Peace, ya'll!
