"No one said it HAD to be 12 x 12"!

I like using sketches for my regukar 12 x 12 layouts, but I often adapt the same sketches to use for mini album pages and cards, too. It's pretty easy to use my photo software to crop and reduce sketches to fit the format in which I want to work.

Right now I'm working on a 5 x 7 inch mini featuring photos and memories from my trip to Disneyland with my youngest daughter's family in August 2012. For this page about Mickey's Soundsational Parade, I used the March 5 sketch from the Citrus Twist Kit Club's blog. This is the sketch:


I sized the sketch to include the main part of the sketch within a 5 x 7 inch area and created this layout page for my mini:


I'm using a special mini album kit that I bought on sale from Citrus Twist Kits back in July 2014 (I bought it a year later) and then never used. I have 10 pages done for the book but need to take pictures so I can post.

This layout was created in 12 x 12 with the March 12 Citrus Twist sketch and the new March Citrus Twist main kit and some add-ons. My youngest grandchild turned six months old last week  (already!) so I commemorated that in the layout:



The camera didn't like this for some reason and I just couldn't seem to get a great shot of it; looks much prettier in person! This is the sketch:



That's all for today. Thanks for looking; have a great week!

I also enjoy using sketches in my scrapbooking and have often turned single page sketches into double page layouts, but I have never thought to use a sketch for mini albums! Thank you so much for the idea - BL
