Learning scrapbooking is often done with practice, looking around for inspiration, and trying to recreate projects we admire. Sometimes, we can be inspired by finished projects, but sometimes, we also have to use our imagination to interpret something.
This challenge will give you an opportunity to envision something from a “boring” base, and you will have to imagine the end result differently. The sketch is only a written idea, and you can fly with it, modify it, and customize it to fit your vision, your photos, your supplies.
Here is the sketch you will want to start with. You can use the rectangles to place photos or decorative papers or something else altogether.

I love sketch challenges. This one is just simple and whimsical. You might get the idea that I like mice and let me tell you I do NOT! Thankfully, I haven’t seen any here in Florida. Sure, I know they are probably out there lurking somewhere, but as long as they lurk far away from me we will live on peaceably. Let one try and come in the house and I will turn into their worst nightmare until he is gone to his lofty reward. I can be more tenacious than a cat when it comes to mice. However, if you look at pictures of them, they are darn cute. I will admit that.March 13, 2021 at 1:26 pm #54541
Love it, Minka! Saw a mouse the other day as I was cleaning out the garden…he was scurrying away which was fine with me. I don’t mind them being outdoors…like you…they need to stay away from my home.March 13, 2021 at 3:09 pm #54547
Thanks Bonnie … Certainly just a simple one but I happened to be looking at pictures of mice at the time so used some. I did see one picture that said “the early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese!” I laughed at that as it’s pretty true! I think I will try another that’s a bit more complicated.March 13, 2021 at 5:10 pm #54554March 13, 2021 at 6:42 pm #54556
Thought I would take a break from the labs and give this a shot. Using Kimeric Kreations It’s a Spring Thing for paper and elements.March 13, 2021 at 6:43 pm #54557
Minka, both of your layouts are great. The mouse one is so much fun to read and the pictures make me grin. The one with the rain reminds me of my boys playing in the rain. Great job!March 13, 2021 at 8:57 pm #54561
Val – Yours is awesome. Good thinking putting the one pic utilizing all the boxes. Lovely use of color with the matching pinks making a stand out statement. Love it all around. 🙂March 14, 2021 at 5:33 pm #54653
Val, I also think it was a stroke of genius to place your photo in all frames.
I have been trying to scrap Thanksgiving, 2020 since Thanksgiving Day with now luck. This sketch opened the door and the layout just fell into place. The two young people are my adopted niece and nephew. I have known them since their birth and they are now independent, working adults.March 16, 2021 at 8:32 pm #54792
Bonnie – So glad you finally got the Thanksgiving itch scratched! And what a wonderful job you did with it. Some very happy faces in that layout.March 17, 2021 at 3:36 pm #54832
Thank you, Val!March 17, 2021 at 11:06 pm #54869Anne LampParticipant
I used the sketch challenge to figure out how I wanted to present my pictures for the Theme Challenge.March 18, 2021 at 2:32 pm #54899March 19, 2021 at 5:11 am #54935CristinaParticipant
I love to see the diversity of creativity starting with the same sketch. Great work, everyone! … I like this type of sketch that showcases many pictures.March 19, 2021 at 10:49 am #54955March 20, 2021 at 2:47 pm #55038Ann SeeberParticipant
Time for the Sketch Challenge and another story. I’m afraid the journaling might be small so here’s a recap:
“The year was 1978 and movie star Burt Reynolds was accepting an award from N.A.T.O. (National Assoc. of Theater Owners) at the first convention that we attended after becoming theater owners ourselves.
As we watched, Burt pulled our 16- year-old daughter, Laurey, up on stage with him where we could see she was still trying to take his picture.
The National Enquirer’s headline the next day screamed, “BURT’S NEW SQUEEZE” and it faked a story that he was stepping out on Dinah Shore, who was his latest heartthrob.”
So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 😉
The photos are top row: Laurey at age 16, her closeup of Burt Reynolds; second row: her photo of Burt, the coverage in the National Enquirer, and another of Burt that Laurey took while onstage.
btw: Laurey is the new grandmother of baby Logan who was born Feb 6.March 20, 2021 at 3:59 pm #55044
Minka: Love your mice layout. The picture of the mouse using the mousetrap as a weight machine is sooo cute. Makes me think I should do a layout of my mousecapades. Yellow boots is adorable and I like the gradient background.March 20, 2021 at 4:00 pm #55046
Val: I really like how you used one photo within all the photo slots.March 20, 2021 at 4:15 pm #55047
Bonnie: Made a comment about yours in the Showroom. But is so nicely done that it is still worth another look.March 20, 2021 at 4:16 pm #55048
Anne: I also commented on yours in the Showroom. The photos are beautiful and the background is perfect.March 20, 2021 at 4:17 pm #55049
Lynda: Great use of a mandala on the background. You have some lovely views from your deck; but I am partial to the gnome with the glass of wine. Looks as if he may have drank too much, LOL. You have taken making mandalas to the extreme and they are all awesome.March 20, 2021 at 4:18 pm #55050
Ann: Commented on yours in the Showroom. But I still smiled when I saw it again. Lucky girl.March 20, 2021 at 5:07 pm #55052
Ann, that is one hell of a story. Nice layout and telling.
Thanks for your kind words Karon. The Gnome is Chuck. He travels the country with us. When the wind picks up he holds down the fort so to speak.

Lynda – Your deck has some great sights to see. Your gnome made me smile. And your mandalas are always interesting to see.March 20, 2021 at 6:26 pm #55059
Ann – What a crazy story. It is very cool that you were theater owners and that your daughter got to get her picture with Burt. Very awesome.March 20, 2021 at 7:04 pm #55068Corrie KinkelParticipant
This whole year the staionsquare (Stationsplein) in our village is a building site. They are undertaking a major reconstruction. On some days you can pass but you have to go through sand/mud and on other days you must take a detour. This sketch challenge was a good opportunity to showcase it. Later this year I’ll do something with the endresult that hopefully will give us a nice and welcoming square. Because I plan to use it over here I did this one in Dutch.March 21, 2021 at 4:22 pm #55145
Corrie: Very nice use of the sketch and I love how you did it in Dutch.March 21, 2021 at 4:23 pm #55147
Had to get on the bandwagon myself, LOL.
