Interpreting a sketch - sarahs cards challenge

I do like a sketch to work from. I find sketches quite inspiring and think they can be quite flexible if you get a good one. Quite often I will start a piece by looking at a sketch and then go off and do my own thing.
This sketch below is the sketch challenge for sarahscards this month. Once I got started I decided I quite liked the sketch so i wondered if I could use it a few different times to see what i came up with. In the end, I made 5 lo's. These are for a couple of different albums but to be honest I do not think they look too "samey" and if they all ended up in one album it would probably be ok.
So thanks for the sketch and below are my lo's.
This was my first lo's which is also liked to one of the other challenges - The theme was a fav season so i chose spring. I have used the MME bloom and grow pp's for this lo. I always think of spring as the growing of me life, lambs, flowers etc. This photo is quite appropriate as I am pregnant here and have my own bump growing.
This second lo was made using the gogokit this month. I have used two photos but you can see that it is loosley based on the sketch which was the main inspiration. Its a photo taken in Dec with my sister and my daughter.
This lo is for an album I am doing for my mum. The pic was taken last June outside their new home in Spain. I have used bella bvd papers.
I adore this photo - mainly as I love her dress! I have used little shoebox pp's and Emily is on her daddys shawl in this photo - 35 years after it was made and as good as new.
For this last lo I have used the new honey & (something i can't remember) papers. I was not quite so pleased with this one but it still follows the sketch.
So this was my scrapping last week 5 lo's one sketch. Thanks to Sarahs cards for a great sketch and for posting up the challenge.

Wow, I really love this idea ! I'll definitely have to give this a go ... one sketch, five layouts - defo has a ring to it !

I really like how you have taken aspects of it, and made each layout so totally different.... and each one is really good with lots of different papers and embellies!

Thanks for taking so much time and effort on the challenge. xx
