So Happy To Be Outside

I want to start off by saying that I love Allison's sketches. They have helped me create some of my favourite pages. This week is one-page week on the Sketch Support blog. I had recently developed some photos of one of my cats and decided to use the sketch to do a layout about him......isn't he handsome?

I used papers from the Stella & Rose collection from My Mind's Eye.

So Happy To Be Outside

For the teal border on my page, I started out with a frame like this.

I cut the frame into strips and then layered them together forming a long piece. I layered a piece of the yellow pattern paper on top and added the brads.

I stitched a row of x's along the top of my layout.

I wrapped a piece of baker's twine around the smaller photo and added a heart button (because I 'heart' Cooper).

I even used my own hand writing to do the journaling.

I hope you visit the sketch support blog and download the sketch for yourself. If you create something, let me know here. I would love to check it out!
