One Sketch Two Ways

I hope you enjoyed the series the last few Mondays about how I scrap my big vacations.  Be sure to leave feedback in the comments if you have any questions I can address.

Again with the sketches!  I thought today I might show you how I took one sketch and interpreted it in two different ways.

Sketch:  Lisa Day 28 Days of Sketches

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

This version is slightly more loyal to the original sketch than the next one is.  I did make quite a few changes though, including the larger photo in the center and the blocks of paper around the edge.  

My photos were very colorful, so I picked some Echo Park paper that picked up the yellow, fuschia, and greens in the costumes.

Glitter letters from Pink Paislee added to the whimsy of the layout.

Supplies: American Crafts Cardstock, Glitter Buttons; Recollections Glitter adhesive back cardstock (Purple); Echo Park Sweet Summertime (Sunny Spots, Flower Garden), Everybody Loves Christmas (Bright Stripes)

Pink Paislee Sweetness glitter sticker alpha; Martha Stewart punch; Divine Twine

Best Christmas Present Ever!

Can you see the similarities to the first layout?  I used photo strips along the sides as an interpretation of the grid pattern in the sketch.  (sorry this one's a little blurry).

The title is in a different location too.  Gosh, I feel like I'm playing that game where you find the differences in two pictures!

An embellishment cluster this time, but the journaling is in a similar location.

Supplies:  Bazzill cardstock; Echo Park Dots and Stripes (Navy Large Dot); Crate Paper Peppermint Collection (Embellish); American Crafts Thickers; Lily Bee letter stickers; Jolee's Boutique felt snowflakes; Martha Stewart doilies; Love, Elsie soft charms (Noel); Elle's Studio (2); Tim Holtz tiny attacher

I love your layouts... I wish I could work with multiple photos on this level better. Mine always seem to come out a mess, so I stick with single photo layouts! Great job on these!!

Thanks so much!  I rely heavily on sketches, since I have no design sense whatsoever!
