I've said it before, I'll say it again: I usually never follow sketches a lot. I'll 'fess up to the reason why: I like to submit for publication. Whether I get paid for a published layout or I get compensated with scrapbooking products, it sure helps me since we are a one income family (being a stay-at-home-mom takes sacrifices!) I believe submitting something that looks exactly like a sketch by someone else would be unethical... Am I wrong?
So I don't usually use sketches very much (and if I do, I just use them as a starting point only, the end result never looks like the original, lol) Don't get me wrong: there's nothing wrong in using a great sketch. I just chose not to do it. Except for project 12. I know these layouts are just for me. It feels good not to have to think about design. So, without further ado (it's "ado" people, not "adieu"! ;) ), here's my layout (I'm sorry that it's crooked!):
I took a picture before I erased my pencil marks, sorry!
