Sketch #19-12

Hi everyone! 
Welcome to S: CY for another brand new, free and inspiring Sketch! Hmmmmmm.... what have we this week...? Let's have a peek! 
Sketch #19-12 created by
 S: CY Team Leader

 Ali MacDonald
This week's Sketch was originally created as a "map" so that I could scrap some HUGE 11 x 13" photos... the ones you say you'll never buy, and never display. These HUGE photos often come as part of  dept store's photo-package. (LOL) Well, it always ends up more economically sensible to buy the darned things and then, as "cute" as they are, they sit in a big ole' envelope 'til someone can DO something with them! LOL That's our story, anyway!  
For our family, this just means that at some point, Mom (me) scrapbooks 'em. You can see by the date on my pic below that this took just "a few" years (Ahem... yes, 1997- 2012 is just a few years. LOL!!) 
So... that's the scoop on the creation of this rather "different" sketch. Let's have  a peek at what the S: CY Design Team created with this unusual layout map!

[Tammy's Notes: The  background & elements are from stationery that my Grandparents gave me when I was a kid!  I just scanned it in & edited it to suit my needs. The title is a free font called Feathergraphy2 with flowers added from the stationery.]
