WOW...2 Layouts in 2 Days!

I'm not sure how this happened but I've managed to complete another layout. AND my house is clean!! I had some friends over this morning so that's why it's clean. And, clean house = time to scrapbook. The only roadblock I had was Ali and Caden waking Colton up early but he actually settled down pretty quick. I flipped my Designing with 2007 calendar (Autumn Leaves) over to today and there was the cutest little page with a sketch. I used the sketch and adapted it to a 12 x 12 layout. I used to think that I was cheating if I used someone else's sketch for my pages...that they weren't really my own. But I've finally realized that no matter how many people have the same blueprint, that all the pages will be different. So, when I'm in a slump, I don't feel a bit guilty about pulling out my magazines or sketch books or even sketch web sites. BTW...there is an awesome web site full of sketches for pages, cards, tags, etc. It's http://www.pagemaps.com/. I'll post a link in the sidebar so you can find it again. You'll have a great time playing with that one!
