Wild w/ Sketches in Thyme

I hope you're all enjoying your April so far.
Today I bring you this sketch from the Sketches In Thyme blog, make sure you check out all the details for the monthly contest on their blog:

And here is my take on the sketch:

I used a kraft background that I grunged up with some Vintage Photo distress ink and then I layered a bunch of beautiful patterned papers from my TSR monthly kit

I did some fussy cutting to layer the way I wanted and popped up the butterfly sticker with some foam adhesive.

I finished up with some fun stickers and journaling.
Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Hunt

 Getting in one last challenge this month.
I used TSR's sketch for this layout:

I used this month's kit with Echo Park's Celebrate Spring line.

I did some fussy cutting and had fun layering all the pretty designs.

I finished up with journaling on strips and outlining the alphas in my title to make them pop more against my white background. 
Thanks for coming by!

Leprechaun Trap

Today I'm sharing a layout I made using TSR's Freaking Fast Friday challenge. This is one of my favorite challenges ever!

I pulled out some old papers and just started cutting. I think that might be my favorite part of the challenge. Occasionally I overthink things and this challenge just doesn't work that way.

I also pulled out some fun things I got from Paper Issues a while ago and made this into a fun holiday layout to go along with the theme of the pictures.

My favorite part was stacking up the sequins to create a pile of gold.
Thanks! :)Ange

Shine layout

 Hey there!
I've got one of the most beautiful sports layouts I've ever created to share with you today.
Check it out:

Isn't that fun?!
I used this awesome sketch from Sketches in Thyme and a kit from TSR with Echo Park's Just be You line. Not exactly the line you would think of for sports papers, but I think it turned out fabulous!
Here's a few closeups:

I crossed out the part of the journaling on the sticker that didn't fit with my theme and added in what I wanted with these fun alphas

I also cut up a journaling card to put on the page the way I wanted instead of leaving it in the rectangle form.

Add a few softball brads and a LOT of brown inking and you have an awesome sports layout using an unexpected line.

Thanks for stopping by!

LOL layout

 I'm here with this month's Sketches in Thyme layout:

You can find the sketch here.
I had so much fun working with this sketch. It was super fun and easy.

I dug into my stash for this layout and used a line I picked up at the Let's Create expo a few years ago from Hazel and Ruby. This line was perfect for these cute and fun pics of my daughter.

I added lots of little details with wood veneer, puffy stickers, washi tape, word stickers and doodling.
Thanks for swinging in!
