I liked the layout, but thought it needed some intrigue. Here's my first page using the basic elements of the sketch.
I used DCWV papers (LOL - my favorites for page layouts) from Summer Dreams. Just two sheets of paper from this stack and some white card stock. The base of the page is a sheet of blue printed paper that has a white bird in the lower corner.The other page of paper is border strips. I used two different border strips to crisscross the background paper. I used white card stock for the photo mat. There is a sheet of tags included in this stack, I used a green tag for journaling.
The glittered letters are from an alphabet set I had in my stash. I have corrected the Y so it is not crooked - sorry for the photo. I tried to pick out colors that were in the papers. The large purple flower is a brad buddy from Paper Wishes. The rest of the embellies are buttons from my stash. I threaded DMC dazzling embroidery floss in the button trying to match the flowers on the border strip below the mat. Here are more closeups.
Thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you have any questions or comments. I'll have variation two in a day or so.
