Christy from Christy's Beautiful Life is doing 30 Days of Sketches on her YouTube channel. Her first video is using the January 15, 2017 Stuck?! sketch from Laura Whitaker which can be found on her Pinterest board.

When I selected my papers this month I knew I wanted to use the Recollections Tan Quilt and Blue Tan Plaid paper for the pictures of a local playground that was donated to Kids Around the World. It was recycled and sent to another country. At this time I'm waiting for my photos so I will add them when they come in.

From my reject box I pulled out the map tag and cut it in half, punched the hole, added twine and placed it on the top and bottom of the layout. The red hearts were originally white and I colored them red.

I stamped the leaves on white cardstock and spray misted them. I was going to use it as a border but didn't like the look, so I cut them apart. In the embellishment cluster I have the heart, leaf, and sequin.

Thanks for stopping by.
