I love all of Julie's work and love working with her sketches! This particular sketch was posted on the JILLIBEAN SOUP BLOG (another favorite of mine!!).. last week and loved it so much, I thought I would show you not ONE but TWO ways to use a sketch! So here is the sketch:

For the first project I created a layout but Flipped the sketch to accommodate my pictures better! Here it is:


Some close ups:




For the next project, I wanted to show you how a layout sketch can be turned into a card sketch (with a little tweaking of course!)
