This weekend I was inspired by the current sketch on the Creative Scrappers blog. They always have wonderful sketches and contributions from their design team and others, but I don't always get a chance to play along. When I needed a sketch this weekend to jump start my scrap time, I got on their blog to see the current sketch. I liked all the layers in this sketch, so I incorporated that element in my layout especially. I used a 4x6 photo instead of the square and turned things around a bit. I reached for my stack of Heidi Swapp papers and embellishments (from her "Dreamy" line) - the water color feel and cool beach-y colors are perfect for the layout. I added some black borders which help ground and highlight some of the layers. The embellishment pack included these great doodle stars, which I think look a little like starfish.
