Paper Poppy Sketch Challenge

Just wanted to let you all know that The Paper Poppy Kit Co. just posted the monthly sketch which was created by the lovely and talented Julie Bonner. This is my take on her sketch and I followed it pretty closely for the most part, but expanded the idea to include two photos. My favorite element on this layout is how I turned the little Jillibean Soup birdhouses upside down to look like arrows. That was a midnight idea if you know what I mean. Funny how the brain works when it is jacked up on caffeine at all hours of the night. LOL!

Don't forget to stop by for the sketch at The Paper Poppy blog and if you create something with it, you will be entered to win something. Hope to see you there.

Thank you for stopping by -
