"The warm color scheme really reminds me of spring. I chose these photos from last Easter and paired them with supplies that fit into the color palette. I had so much fun pulling supplies together and it felt very freeing to approach a layout this way." -
Dressed to the nines with high heels and satin evening bags, this rich palette is perfect for every project, no matter what papercrafting style you prefer.
It's always interesting to see how many different ways a sketch can be interpreted. Today, we have a sketch from SNR staffer Candace Lawlor who created the sketch and also completed a layout. Let's see how our staffers interpreted Candace's sketch. How much will they vary from her version?

Unusual size sketches can sometimes stump even the most advanced paper crafter. If you find yourself struggling with a particular form of the sketch, try translating it into something a little more familiar.
My name is Monica Edwards and I live on the Space Coast of Florida. I currently work at Kennedy Space Center, once the home of the infamous shuttle, and I love it. Although, not more than crafting!
I have two older children. My oldest is my boy Andre, 22, and my baby girl, Mariah, 19. I have two dogs, Jake and Nicholas, and if it wasn’t for them being dogs, I think they would scrapbook with me.
