I have something a little different to share today. Have you ever tried using the sketches you find all over blogland as inspiration for scrapbook page layouts? I have taken this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

as inspiration for a page in my scrapbook of the recent trip to Yellowstone National Park.
Here is the basic sketch used to set up the page.
And after I added the pictures.

It was so cool to see the black bear come right down to the road. It stayed there holding up traffic for quite some time. In the lower left is a mama moose taking her baby for a swim. On the right is a young elk feeding at water's edge.
I added a scrap of water design paper behind the moose and elkto bring out the water in the pictures. The background DP is from Paper studio. The font on the label is CK letters that I have in my word program. I think this one is called campground. It prints in b/w and I colored the trees and frames around the words with colored pencils.  To fill in some of the blank spaces, I added bear and moose stickers from Paper House at Hobby Lobby.
If you haven't had a chance to visit Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, I would urge you to put it on your bucket list. They are both awesome.
