Becky's Sketch

by Becky Higgins

This month, I'm taking a break from my usual linear approach to scrapbooking. This sketch is a fun way to cluster a handful of pictures around one main focal-point picture. The easiest part is that you can crop (or digitally resize) all your smaller pictures to be the same size. In my case, I made all the small photos 3″ x 2″ and the main picture a standard 4″ x 6″. Use this sketch to get another layout done in your album! Here are two layouts I created based on the sketch. For more examples, check out my "Becky's Sketch" column in the July 2009 issue of Creating Keepsakes.

On-Line Issues
It's not us. CK is not posting their on-line features for the current month's mag. This is an on-going problem.
This is great
I was a "Simple Scrapbooking" subscriber and thought CK was for the more advanced scrapper. This will help to make the transition a little more easier. Thank you.
Thank you
Thank you for the extra 40 sketches! The link for the main sketch doesn't seem to work. I'm using FireFox.
