Outdoor Girl + a sketch

It's Wednesday...yay!  Hope yours is going well so far.  Today, I'm sharing a sketch I created for the April Sketchathon going on over on the My Scraps & More forums.  Today is the last sure went fast!  This was up on the boards last week.

I used some of the awesome October Afternoon Daily Flash goodies for this one.  I just love the color combo here, and it looks really pretty up against the grey & white striped background.  And I knew that cute little deer would be perfect for these photos of my little outdoor baby :)

This layout came together pretty easily.  It's a lot of paper layers with some tape and embellishments thrown in.  This collection made it easy to embellish.

I pulled out one of my Martha Stewart border punches...hadn't used any of them in a while it seems.  I also mixed my title with some old Lily Bee alphas and some burlap Thickers.

I found these cute wood veneer flowers on clearance at Michael's, and I used a Ranger paint dauber to color them.  I also traced around the edges with a white pen.  They're great for layering with paper, stickers and cord.

Here I combined a tab, a banner date sticker, a die-cut arrow and a chipboard piece to create a little corner cluster.

The sketchathon was so much fun...I have one more sketch and page to share.  Each design team member created five, and I've shared four of mine so far.

Thanks for taking a peek today!
