It's Monday.  Spring Break is over, kids went back to school and I am posting another layout inspired by Paper Issues.  I used the sketch from Sketchy Saturday on their blog. 
Here's the sketch from Jennifer Chapin.  (Thanks Jennifer!)
And this is my take on it.  For some reason I had a hard time using the big circle on my layout.  I moved things around.  A lot.  I think it was the title and trying to fit it in with the circle. But it finally came together.  I love this picture of my daughter and "her" horse.
 If you want to play along with the sketch challenge on the PI Blog, you have until April 17 to link your project.  Thanks for stopping by! Have a good week!

So, I've been inspired to create a layout.  And as usual the inspiration comes from Paper Issues.  This time it's from one of their free cut files that Jen Chapin created.  Thanks PI and Jen! Here's the file.
 This is what a did with the file.  I cut it out on my Cameo and backed it with paper from Shimelle.  Love how it looks! Such a fun background.  I love that I had so many stars cut out from the file too. So I added a few of those by outlining them in black and popping them up with pop dots.  It came together pretty quick. Since the background has all the stars I didn't feel I needed to add too much as far as embellishments go.  Had so much fun with this file!
Hope everyone is having a good week!
