We know that you all love a great sketch.

Sketches have so much life in them.  Use different collections each time, and you are sure to have endless possibilities.  You can also rotate the sketch right or left, and get a whole new take on it.

A Year to Remember 2 Sketch and Layout

July CM Sketch

I hope you were able to join in on all the fun in our recent Virtual Crop. (If not, you can see all the challenges here on the blog and check out all the posts on the CM Events page!)

So here’s my sketch for you to play with:
