  1. Is there somewhere that shows all 12 challenge sketches? It’s difficult to choose which will fit my photos when I have to look at each blog post. Thanks! Sue

  2. Would you post all 12 challenge sketches in one blog post, please? Easier to match with my photos that way, so I can catch up!

  3. What I do is copy and paste each layout diagram and print them out onto copy paper. That way I don’t have to keep looking for the blog posts. I’ve only had time to do layouts 1 and 2 but I will go back to these diagrams and finish up as I can. My goal is never to worry about completing pages just to try to win a prize – the prize is in getting layouts done!

    1. Thanks for all the ideas on how to use the camera love punch.
      They’re great.
