As per every month, or at least my honest attempt at every month, I send out a midmonth update with my Sketch Challenge.  My original sketch and favorite were shown in my Midmonth Newsletter.  (Don't forget to sign up to receive them.  I pack them full of samples and share with you all the latest information.  Sign up on the left column, yellow box, do it now!) 

Here are two more quick layouts using the original sketch.  It's so fun to see the different looks you can get.  If you are inspired to use this layout, please share a jpg with me and I'll post it to the blog!  Go forth and create.
