Layout Challenge Friday

This Friday the challenge is to use a sketch for your layout.  
This sketch by Carin McDonough is a beauty!  
The design team has used this sketch to get you inspired. 

The best part about a sketch is that you can do it as is or just use it as a jumping off spot.  
We can't wait to see your take!
