Circle Weekly Challenge #27

The Cricut Circle Blog post a challenge each week for Circle members only to enter.  This week there was a challenge I was interested in doing. This challenge encouraged us to make a sketch for a 12X12 layout and then make the layout. 

I have made sketches by drawing by hand on paper before but I have been toying with the idea of making my own sketches for layouts using the computer. Today I figured it out. Here is what I came up with to enter for the challenge:

It only took a few minutes to create this sketch using powerpoint and exporting as a jpg file.


Here is the layout I made using the sketch.

The picture of the layout doesn't really show off  the vibrant colors. I may take another photo tomorrow when the lighting is better but you get the gist of it here. I used Gypsy Font for the Birthday word and the cupcake is made with Doodlecharms. I used some stickles to add that gooey icing effect and to make the candle glow. And for the sprinkles I added glass dew drops.  The Joy word is by Prima.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope this inspires you to create your own sketches too!
