ABC Album E & F Layouts

After an incredibly busy week helping finish end-of-school-year assignments (picture me holding a cattle prod - LOL!), I was able to find time to complete two more layouts for my ABC album.

For the E layout, I used my new sketch for Splitcoast Stampers. Since the original sketch is 12' x 12", I had to shrink it down to fit my 8" x 8" format and then adapt a few components, like tracing an outline around my photo with a gel pen instead of framing it.

The sketch:

My layout:

The F layout was based on Sketch-n-Scrap #106, but once again I had to adapt it for my small format. I used a standard 4" x 6" photo, so that covered up a lot of the horizontal strip on the sketch, so I decided to just mat the photo and move some elements around to fit. For example, instead of a banner, I tucked a strip under the ring that replaced the sunburst from the sketch, and I moved the subtitle down below the horizontal strip.

The sketch:
