This is the sketch we used:
First up, here's what Adrienne had to say about her layout: "I was really inspired by Wendy's sketch and how the photos took center stage. I swapped out one of the photo spots for an embellished square that directs the eye towards my journaling. I cut out the "details" arrow from the Flip Flops patterned paper and popped it up with some foam adhesive to give it some extra dimension. I also used a variety of letter stickers for my long title to give it some color and I added a few pops of black throughout my page to help bring it all together."
And here is Adrienne's awesome layout:

Next up, Leslie! Here's what Leslie said about her layout: "-first up, I just wanted to say a little bit about why these pictures of my great niece, Presley mean the world to me. If you’ll notice in my journaling, I tell a short story about my title, what this sweet girl means to me & how her mom, at the tender age of 19 years old – fought and WON the courageous battle of stage 2A Hodgkins Lymphoma. After her intense treatment of chemo & radiation, she was told she could never have children. But as you can see – she was blessed. She was blessed which made us ALL blessed. Especially me. Aunt “Lala” about the sketch - I changed up the sketch a bit by adding another layer of squares & using 3 photos with 3 patterned papers. I had A LOT to journal about this layout so I made specific room to the left to tell my story."
And here's Leslie's gorgeous page:

And finally, here's my layout based on the sketch I created:
I always have a hard time sticking to a sketch exactly...even when they are my own sketches! This one also took on a life of it's own once I got started, but I think that's okay - sketches aren't set in stone, it's just a matter of finding a starting point! Here are a few of the details:
