EMS Sketch Challenge 72 - Let's Go {Kart} Layout

It's been a couple of months since I posted a sketch, so here's one that is quite picture heavy. Honestly, I came up with this sketch by laying my photos down on my Versamat and moving them around until I liked what I saw, so feel free to change up sizes and move things around a little until they work for you! The rectangles with rounded corners are based on pocket cards, since the gals at assure me they have too many of them, so here's a way to whittle down your stash by cropping them and using them as design elements. FYI: I will no longer be including a link-up for my sketches, but please feel free to post a link to your completed layout in the comments section below if you use the sketch. I would love to see what you do with it!

The Sketch:

My Layout:

Heart 2 Heart has a challenge to show a favorite tool we use when creating. I was thinking about my Cricut or my stamps, or even my trimmer, but I would have to say the tool I use every time I craft is my 2 Versamats. They aren't showy, but I love how they help me arrange my projects; whether laying out my pictures in a 12" x 12" grid, creating a sketch, figuring out where to adhere papers, or using the soft side to do some stamping, they come in handy every time!
Timberline stamp set
Later Sk8r papers & PML cards
Slate & Whisper cardstock
Slate ink
Steel Grey marker (Zig)
Durables round studs - antiqued gold
Cricut You are Here cartridge: title
Challenges: Double Trouble #24 - Metallic & Transportation (I added metal studs for Thing 1, used a transportation while on vacation theme for Thing 3, and played along over at Brown Sugar for Thing 2); Brown Sugar #288 Transportation

Love your layout...I just did an ATV adventure and you've inspired me to get my photos scrapped!!! Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble.

Never thought of the Versamats as a tool, but I rarely do scrapbook pages now, but great idea for laying out your pages. You always make your scrapbook pages come to life and great memories, and what fun for transportation. Thanks again for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Brown Sugar.
