Another Round of Sketches!

A few more sketches that I have saved for future use.

What I would do:
So I like the idea of a pattern at the top but not such a busy one. 
That one looks to be 4 X 8.5 and then the pattern at the bottom would be about 4 X 5 I like the border dividers so I would use some of the zip strips from the CTMH papers there or a strip about .25 X 8.5 in its place that worked with the paper (could be pattern or solid) then the bottom one depending on the paper used another that is .25 X 6 torn at each end. I would size up my photo to 2 X 6 or have (2) 3 X 4 in its place. Embellishment where the circle is placed again depending on the paper. I would most likely disregard the black strip on the bottom pattern paper. It feels too busy like the top paper is in my mind. The journaling area is cute I like the shape and if it fit I would go with the same shape or feel. I like the button but that might have to change with the paper choice as well. Title - That could work, maybe a one word to sum up the pictures like RELAX or PERFECTION. Something that would be simple yet speak to the pictures displayed. The splatter on the bottom of the page would be up to what went with the paper I was using but a nice little splatter is usually a bonus on a layout. but again only if it worked.

What I would do:
Center strip of patterned paper looks to be 4 X 9.25 and a coordinating one at the bottom to finish the page about 2 X 4 I would guess. The border down the side of the center paper I would cut a piece of cardstock to 1 X 11.25 and use a border punch all the way down - I usually would adhere this to the paper I am about to tape down too. The journaling area is using that spiral punch again and I love that look so if it worked with the paper I would go for it. always looking to use that punch.  That space feels like it is 3 X 4 and the lines I would use the printer. I can't draw straight as I see crooked:). The photo would be changed to (2) 3 X 4 landscape mats and then some embellishment on the sides where it feels right. The date tag would be something I would add in as well I like the feel but I would change it to a single word reflected by the picture. I am not one for dates on layouts Just isn't my style.
I like the additional border strip at the bottom but if it felt too heavy I would omit it. The title circle is cute with the strip of paper there too. I feel like this would be one I would put my kids names on a label not a circle more of a flourish rectangle and then have the strip of paper at the bottom almost underlining their name and then a matching embellishment on the top right of the label like the butterfly shown.
