Pick Your Own- Sketchabilities #56 --DT

This my last Design Team Layout for this 3 months session but I'm really happy that I'll be continuing to design for Sketchabilities for another 3 months. It's really been a great opportunity and experience. I want to thank Karan for giving me the chance to design for her. It was lots of fun!!
The Sketch this month was challenging for me because I was trying to figure out how to make it original and how to make it my own. I didn't want the layout to look amateur, the way I used to scrapbook 7 years ago. When I finished it I felt quite happy with the results.
I used pictures from our recent trip to an Apple Picking Farm. I've scrapbooked so many apple picking trips that it was another challenge for me to make this an original layout. I used Basic Grey papers and many different embellishments. I sew a -tic-tac-toe grid with zig zag lines to separate the squares. Then I filled the different squares with pictures and embellishments to get the grid effect from the sketch.
