Before I knew about sketches, I used to sit there for a couple hours at a time trying to figure out photo/paper placement on my layouts. Then one day I found out about using sketches and decided to give them a try. I instantly became hooked and now I can't seem to scrap unless I have a sketch in front of me. About 1/3 the time I still come up with my own layout, but the ones made with sketches just seem so much more balanced and better looking. And I seem to enjoy the process more if I have a sketch in front of me - it's like I can go straight to having fun picking out my papers and embellishments. Anyone else in the same boat? Please don't tell me I'm the only one..
