July PageMaps Sketch with Karen Hanson

Hi everyone! It's Karen, and today I am so excited to share with you a layout inspired by one of the amazing Page Maps from Becky Fleck! When Lori mentioned that the DT was teaming up with Becky, I was over the moon. There have been many, many, many times during the years that I have been scrapping that a layout or page just doesn't seem to come together. Having a sketch has saved me from frustration many times.

 And let's face it, anything that keeps crafting a fun adventure for me is a tool that I plan to keep in my pocket!
I loved the simplicity of this sketch and kept it pretty much as it was, using my favourite Cream & Sugar collection for the papers and embellishments and the Grasshopper Dot-Grid Petite Prints as my base. I am quickly running out of this collection and it is definitely time to replenish...I just LOOOVE it!  
The super cute character hearts from the Odds and Ends pack were a perfect replacement for the cute animal characters in the sketch...  
...and I used some Sprinkles in a row to essentially where Becky had some stitching in the original sketch (I am a firm believer that every one of my Doodlebug projects need Sprinkles! ;)). In the end, it's a bright cheerful layout that was so easy to pull together with Becky's creative helps and some cute Doodlebug product. From beginning to end - it was about 15 minutes in the making! Now I am all for time and detail in layouts, but it sure feels great to pound a few out every now and again (especially given my current back load of photos, if you know what I mean). Anyway, I hope this challenge's partnership with Becky will help get you creating too!  
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Karen
