Sunday Sketch February 12th

Let's use up some photos this week!  I love to mix wallet-sized photos with 4 x 6 photos.  Thought this would be a fun way to stack them and help the eyes move around the page.  I'm still wishing for warmer weather, so butterflies and flowers again this week.  Drop me a link if you use this sketch so I can admire your work.
This is another page from the Simple Stories Fabulous collection.  The bright summer colors against the cream ledger paper is a great contrast.  I'll admit that this is not the best photo of my project since I had to pack this up and send it off to CHA the morning after I created it, so I took the photo at night - sorry bout that.
It's really fun to mix the 12 x 12 Expression Cardstock Sticker journal sentiments with the stickers from the Year.o.graphy collection.  This was supposed to be the month of May, but I like the way it started off my journal sentiment - stretch your collection into clever titles.
There are some really fun 3 x 4 and 4 x 6 journaling elements in this collection that can easily be cut up and layered to make unique design ideas on a page. I made the large banner out of patterned paper and then layered it with the 3 x 4 card and the cut the smaller flags from a 4 x 6 journal card.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
