Sketches in Thyme- a New Sketch and a DT Call!!

There's a new sketch at Sketches in Thyme this week, and I have a confession....I struggled with this sketch. I hemmed and hawed over it for a few weeks, and kept pushing it aside for other sketches I liked better. See, I'm a very "symmetrical" kind of scrapper, and the sketch was not working for me. But, that just goes to show that I know nothing....I made the layout and was really pleased with how everything came together! This was definitely one that sent me out of my comfort zone and it was totally worth it!!
and here's the sketch:

A few fun challenges I incorporated into the layout: 1-The cluster of ribbon over a stamp in the top right was scrapjacked from Vicki. 2-I also used the color scheme of navy and yellow from The Paper Variety. 3-I created my butterflies our of a scrap of chipboard, embroidery floss and a little navy ink for handmade embellies challenge at Crop Suey. 4-and my spring themed layout+critters will be entered in the challenges at Whimsical WednesdayFlutter-By-Wednesday and Dream Valley.

I really really really hope you'll pop on over to Sketches in Thyme this week. You can see the rest of the fabulous DT's take on this sketch (I'm thinking none of them struggeld as I did, their projects are fabulous!!), take part in the challenge for your chance to win this fabulous kit from our DT member Fern:

oh and ONE MORE THING....we're having a Design Team Call at Sketches in Thyme and I would LOVE for you to give it a try!! You can go here for all the details!! =) T

  14. I love your LO! I love how your tore paper, the punch, the ticket "SOAR" so clever with hiking, and the journaling! So important that our children see our handwriting! I also like how you stapled... I need to add that element because I love that! How lucky are you all to have this in youyr back yard... your kids look like they enjoyed it to!
