Sketch Thursday

Good Morning! It’s Melissa here with you this morning and I’m sharing a layout I made using this month’s kit and digital files! I was super excited when I got the sketch from Elle and saw that it was based off a layout originally designed by Jill Sprott. I’ve always had a scrappy crush on Jill and love how she journals on layouts!

I pretty much followed her layout except that while she used muted colors, I used a brighter color palette. I also love how this layout can be interpreted to be lifted just as she did or you could use 4 different photos or three photos! I decided to use one photo and use two blocks for my journaling. The block above the picture was used for some little bits stuffed here and there. I really liked how she stitched around and around the “AM” and “PM” on the journaling cards and used that element to stitch around the “Important” and “Love This” blocks on my 3×4 cards I used.
