Love ❤️

This month just slipped right past me! I had this sketch saved and a plan to work with it but I never did! 😂 so here it is, Lets Get Sketchy week 1 (in the last week of September!) better late than never, right?! 

I'm also playing along with The Studio Challenges and their watercolor challenge! 

I have been really missing Belize (my grandparents home) these days, the gorgeous water, the relaxing breeze, the slow pace...aaaah, soon I hope. Take Me Away was perfect for my mentality on this layout! So here is my layout! 

I tried to keep it pretty simple, I did turn the photo from the way it was in the sketch. Other than the Take Me Away line I also used some watercolor strips, some ribbon, and gold beads! I'm gonna go try to find my weekend vibes elsewhere! Happy Wednesday!!

Be Mine

Here is the newest sketch from LGS! 

Here is my take :)

I have had this photo (which was actually B's Valentine for his basketball team) for a loooonnngggg time and I thought this sketch was perfect for the photo! The paper straw was a bit larger than the lollipops that were originally in his hand, but it still worked! ❤️

Hip hippo hooray!

I'm so excited to share the cutest hippo I have ever made. Okay, so it's the only hippo I have ever made, but she's super cute! 

I used this fabulous sketch from Lets Get Sketchy

And a free cut file from paper issues, here is my layout! 

I am still using up old stash and finding all of the hidden treasures I have been hoarding for too long!

Picture This Star Challenge!

Go check it out! I love using stars in my layouts! I added some stars to an awesome free cut file (grab yours!) and voila! Here it is! 

I used some old graphic 45 papers and stickers I had to make this carousel photo more magical :)

New paper issues submissions

I have been playing along with the fun challenges at paper issues! Here are 2 of my newest layouts!

I'm kind of ashamed to say that I found 2 unopened echo park paper collections in my stash 😂 I'm so glad I did, it was fun to work with these bright colors and fun patterns!!
