“Happy Times” layout by Adriana Bolzon

I rotated the sketch around to the left and slightly moved the centre design to the left hand side of the page. That’s what so great about sketches, you can draw some inspiration from them but don’t have to follow them completely. I created my layout with the Cottage Rose paper collection.
