This was the second sketch:
I liked the idea of a grid, but decided to put my spin on it when I put my layout together.
I cut out all of my patterned paper pieces into more or less similarly sized rectangles. Then I went on a layering spree. :) I kept all of the layering within the bigger grid to give it a sense of order within the complexity. Then I added a couple of the chipboard die cuts, some stamped tickets that I cut out and a sprinkling of gems and ink along the diagonal to bring the layout together.
Kraft Funday is a challenging collection with its soft colors, and this layout was a bit of a stretch for me, but I really like how it turned out!
