A Winner and a Sketch Challenge

First, I wanted to announce the winner of the Valentine's Day Blog Hop! And the winner is...


Please email me at limegreen(dot)flower(at)juno(dot)com so I can send you your stamps- thanks! Thank you for all the wonderful comments, ladies! :)

I did this layout yesterday with some pictures of our new baby goats! I used this sketch from Amanda's challenge at her blog; you can find the challenge here.

I used some older MME "Bloom and Grow" paper from my stash. I'm going to TRY to use up as much of my stash as possible before I buy new stuff. We'll see how long that lasts... LOL

I really liked this sketch. I made the circles a bit bigger that the sketch showed them because I wanted to make one of the circles a picture. I added some burlap and buttons to add some texture to my layout. I think it looks a lot better with the texture than just with the paper.
Cardstock: Bazzill, Core'dinations
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye
Letter Stickers: American Crafts
Twine: The Twinery
Burlap: Hobby Lobby
Buttons: my stash
Font: CK Toehead
Notebook Edge Punch: EK Success
 Die Cut Machine: Cricut (cartridge: George and Basic Shapes)

Oh- and you see that twine swirled across the page? I did that for the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge to use ribbon or twine on your project. You can find the challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
