Today, I am giving you a two-page sketch from PageMaps. Now, I know some of you are "anti-double-pagers" but what I really love about this sketch is you could choose to do a single page easily using either side of this sketch.
Image

And here's my example using my Basic Grey 25th and Pine DT Kit. I used it for a Project 12 catchup page. After this one, I only have December 2011, November 2012 and February 2012 to do and I am done with Project 12 for 2011 and 2012!!
Image

The rules:
* Create a new layout for this challenge.
* Load your creation in the gallery and link back to this thread by DECEMBER 30th (not the 31st please)!

I like double page sketches, and I like this one. Not sure how much scrapping I'm going to do this month, but if I need a 2-page sketch, this will definitely be my choice. :)

Great choice in sketch, Megan! I love, love, love getting lots of pictures on my 2-pagers. (I'm with you, Louise.) I love your example. The photo of you and your DH and Liam is just adorable. You have such a beautiful family!

I'm heading to my vacation pictures from July to make this sketch. Fun!

I love this sketch but I'll have to admit it took a bit of precise measuring to get everything to come together evenly. But then I was working with pictures that I already had printed out and their sizes aren't the same as the ones on the sketch. I really like how it turned out, so the extra effort was worth it. Thanks, Megan!

It turned out great Susan!

A trick I use for these types of precise grid style layouts is that I actually mat all the photos and patterned paper on one large sheet of cardstock, lining up the corners and I actually cut the patterned paper blocks a little larger and overlap my photo edges with the paper. Then I trim any edges sticking over the edge of my large cardstock mat to get clean edge lines.

Susan, I had the same problem but I think you did an excellent job with the measuring! :)
Judy, LOVE your pages! Those pics are GREAT! :)

I did a layout about Christmas sometime in the 1970s. The guy with the beard is a very dear family friend that was my boyfriend's BFF in high school and whom my Mom and Dad basically adopted. He's still a good friend! :)
