My First Design Team sketch layout is posted on

Nuts About Sketches.  Here's the sketch and my take on it.  I'm never one to take a sketch and do an exact, literal layout of it.  Instead I consider it a recipe guide.  When I cook at home using a recipe I inevitably add a little more of this and that or substitute one thing for another, either because I don't have it or because it fits my tastebuds better.  On my layout I substituted paper strips for the torn paper effect and the flow of my photos didn't work with the way the sketch had them laid out so I flipped the sketch.  Then I added an assortment of buttons, metals, brads and clear shapes to tie it all together.  I created my title in Illustrator and cut it with my Craft ROBO, which I have a renewed love for again.  My favorite parts are the 4 clear stars I stapled to the layout, 2 of which highlight the stars that are the same color as the Astros star logo AND the clear buttons that I applied white rub-ons to.  I must say that I might change out the journal circle and make it look like a baseball.  That's the one thing that's driving me nuts.
