Welcome to the December Sketch Challenge! I have a great template for you this month.

For this challenge, you will need to create a layout with the free template provided here (#721.). If you complete a layout, you will get another free template (#722). Your layout must be unique for this challenge and cannot be used for any other challenges here at GDS. I also ask that you use primarily GDS products.

If you use my Expressions Bundle (https://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&cPath=29_41&products_id=7204#prettyPhoto) (currently on sale for only $6.00), I will also send you my NEW Expressions Clusters FREE!

The deadline for this challenge will be Dec. 31 at Midnight!

Here are some previews:

Your layout is outstanding! I am wracking my brains out on what to do. I may have to wait out on this challenge. :(

BTW, a wonderful expression you gave to your mom. :)

Thank you for the compliment, it's so sweet! If you're having problems with the template, maybe put several of the squares together for a photo, do a checkerboard pattern, or even one large picture that is broken up into the squares. Just some thoughts.

These photos were all taken within 5 minutes from beginning to end - showing the wonderous colors of the sunset in my neighborhood this past August.

"These Are The Days" by Andrea Gold had the perfect colors for this page. Thanks.

I did add a border around each photo group to make them stand out better.
