Brother and Lil Sister layout for Sketches in Thyme

Welcome to my blog today. I am posting my inspiration for the latest Sketches in Thyme sketch.  We have four sketches per month, play along on the Facebook Group.  I created a layout of my niece and nephew.  I love them so much.  I used a lot of random papers and embellishments from my stash.

Here's the sketch:

I sprinkled all sorts of brads, rub ons and other embellies around the layout. 

I dug out Creative Memories sticker letters for the title but I also found the word "lil" on a sticker sheet and found it to be the perfect touch.

I used drops of liquid glue to adhere the fiber in just dots around the twist.  I ended by wrapping it around the circle frame I cut with a metal die.

I found a little ticket that worked great and some cool stickers too!

Graphic 45 Well Groomed with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to this week's inspiration for Atlantic Hearts Challenge.  I have had this collection for a little while now on top of a pile.  I thought this was the perfect occasion to use all the fun papers. The strips in the sketch were perfect to show off some of the great patterns. 

Here's this week's sketch.

I used pop dots on the embellishments.
