Happy Holidays!

Question for all you out there.....

I was reading a post at 2Peas about being able to search for photo orientation on sketch blogs.

I tried putting a search feature in, but a bunch of other stuff came up when looking for a certain number of photos.  I then started putting labels in about the photo orientation.  Only problem with that is there are now a large number of labels in the list.  I could now take out the number of photos labels as the other covers it also.

Any thoughts on this from my blog readers??

Thanks!!  I just want to make this blog as easy to navigate as possible.

My layout looks a little different than the sketch as I wanted to use the journaling to cover part of the pic. The sketch was already made, so I didn't want to re-create it....

There were a couple of requests for 2 page 12 X 12 sketches with only horizontal pics, so here is the first one.  Remember if you use the sketch, send me a link.  I'd love to post your work on the blog.

If you use my sketches......

I'd love for you to show me the results.  If you are willing, I'd also love to post your pages on the blog.  I love to see how others use the sketch as their own.

I resurrected my other blog, Musings of an Independent Designer, to post other sketches to.  The sketches there might include photos that I have cropped down from a 4 X 6 or have a 5 X 7 portrait on them.  I hope you will visit me there also.
