Hey there! Happy Saturday!
Just got home from a day of shopping and lunch with the girls, so thought I would share a layout I finished early this morning.
I used 7 Dots and a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches and a challenge at Paper Issues for this layout of Sierra's first day at college:

I used a stencil and added some various colors of ink. Then I added watercolor to my background. 
I added a Blue Fern chipboard swirl and some Fancy Pant sequins. I fussy cut the "good day" banner from a 3x4 card:

I love the saying" Don't let anyone ever dull your sparkle" and thought it was fitting for her first day. I fussy cut the feather from another 3x4 card:

I added some sticker sayings and stamped the date. I accidentally stamped it upside down first, lol!

Here are a few more stickers:

Here is the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
