Paper Bakery | Write This Down

**One of my layouts is being spotlighted over on the Elle's Studio blog today...stop by and check it out!!**

There's a new Sketch Challenge up on the Paper Bakery blog, of course I had to change things up a bit to make it my own ;) Here's my take on Sketch # 16, using the October scrapbooking kit.
And here's the sketch...
As you can see, I turned the 8 small rectangles behind the photos into 4 long rectangles as the focal point for my layout, and cut 1 of them into a banner shape to pull that idea from the sketch. I used only 1 photo instead of 2, but you could even use 4 small photos just as easily! I also placed my title directly under the photo like in the sketch, using one of the chipboard pieces from the kit.
To add more color and dimension, I did a little fussy cutting of the pretty floral paper, and added it along with more of the chipboard pieces. Add in a few lines of journaling, and my layout was complete! 
 
This Sketch Challenge is open for 2 weeks, why not give it a try? Just link up your project on the sidebar of the Paper Bakery blog.  Winner will be chosen at random and you could win a prize from the Paper Bakery!!
 
As always, thanks for stopping by!
