Every Sunday there's a new sketch presented at the Studio Calico blog. I often mean to create something from them - I even have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to sketches - but I so rarely end up using them.

April Foster's Bday layout was my favorite layout from the Lisse Street gallery. This week the scrapbook layout sketch is based on that layout! So this week I actually managed to make something from the sketch. It's such a simple layout so when following the sketch it's really easy to end up making the exact same thing she did. To change things up a bit I decided to go with a two-pager.

I happened to have the Sandlot and Cirque kits on my table, so that's what I used. They were a really good match. I printed out my favorite photos from March, most of them are 3x4, and made a messy collage on the right side. I found the silver puffy hearts in my PL stash - I forgot where they are from. The journaling is printed on vellum and numbered like the photos. I really like putting these month-in-review layouts togther. They're a lot of fun!
