I LOVE this collection from Simple Stories - Vintage Ancestry:

I played Tic Tac Toe with Stacy for this page:

I use stickers - twine - enamel dots

My favorite part was the grid that I made using a marker to draw light lines and then filling each spot with stickers.

So happy with how this one turned out!

Good morning!
Benefits to waking up at the crack of dawn - getting a page or two done!

I put this together using a kit I scored at Hobby Lobby, who is having a HUGE clearance sale!
This kit cost me a whopping $1.49!
I fussy cut the flowers and added some pop dots.

Here is the sketch I used = #225 from Sketch N Scrap:

 Our pet tortoise is the best pet we have ever had!  He is so fun, for as much fun as a tortoise can be.

For my background, I dusted off some older bottles of Tattered Angels misting sprays.
This is a mix of 3 different colors.
Instead of spraying them directly on the paper, I spray them on a sheet of plastic, sprayed with a mist of water to get them to mix and then laid my paper on top.
This gave me the look watercolor look and not the "sprayed" look.
I like this technique - although its still a bit

Yeah, that’s my boy!

This month's sketch from Stick it Down was a great one photo page that came just in time for this great picture of my son and I:

I used the Cocoa Vanilla Legendary collection, lots of pop dots and Nuvo Drops.

Here is the original sketch:

I can't believe how quickly this came together!
It helps when you're inspired by a great sketch.
