Pages with Papertrey Sketch #11

For this month's Pages with Papertrey sketch challenge, I chose this sketch from the My Mind's Eye blog:

Last month, I took a two photo sketch and used it to make a one photo layout, but this month, I used this one photo sketch to make a two photo layout. Here it is:

I used American Crafts cardstock (12x12 white), My Mind's Eye patterned paper and decorative brads, a Crate Paper fabric brad and a Studio Calico badge. I also used Papertrey Ink cardstock (harvest gold), stamps (rosie posie, simply you, turning a new leaf) and dies (Beautiful Blooms II #2, tag sale #5, script alphabet).

Here's a close up of this gorgeous fabric brad. I stamped some rosie posie blooms on the harvest gold cardstock before diecutting it:

There was a tiny smudge on the SC badge, so I selectively inked a Simply You stamp and trimmed it out to cover it up. I'm not a fan of smudges. ;)

And a close up of my journaling:

If you create a layout using this sketch, please add a link below in the comments or here on the Papertrey Ink forum, so I can check it out!

Thanks for looking!
