Scrapbook Layout Process: "Homegrown" & Sketch Challenge Entry

I'm back to share my second challenge entry for The Memory Nest blog Summer Sketch Challenges.

Say that three times fast.

Again I am using the Echo Park "Homegrown" Collection I purchased earlier this year with the purpose of documenting my new gardens.

This layout is showing off my prize winning tomatoes.

Well, not prize winning.

But tomatoes.

Growing, alive tomatoes.

So, Winning.

This sketch challenge was tougher than the one I shared yesterday.  However, I tried to look past the actual structure of the sketch and think a little outside the box.

Here is the sketch from Make it Monday #70:

There is white space.  Does "white space" on a layout scare you? Just a little? It does me.

It's just out there. Empty.

But once I got going, this layout came together quickly:

That little pocket? It's from Basic Grey "Herbs & Honey" Collection. I actually came across a package of these at Tuesday Morning. Bonus. 

To see the process, watch the video below where I also tell the tale of my garden predator. 

Also see a complete list of products used over in my gallery at  I hope you will also give it a "thumbs up" if you visit.  

If you need some fresh challenges to get the mojo flowing, I hope you will check out Leslie's blog, give her some love, and complete this challenge for yourself. The deadline is September 4.
