I just learned this cool technique in Photoshop...how to change a photo into a pencil sketch.  This is for Scrap N Pieces, August Photo Editing Challenge.

This is a rare photo I have of my Dad and his 3 brothers (circa 1940), my Dad is the youngest in the front.

This week's sketch from "Let's Scrap"  by Debby deWilder.  


I just love the big boxes and clean lines of this sketch that was perfect for an outdoor project.  I created the layout with MyMemories Suite and switched the order to suit my photos of my brand new sidewalk.  I used 4mybabiesscraps, "Playing in the Park" kit.
