 Hey there!

I retired at the end of 2021 and so far I am loving it! More scrappy time, YAY!

I played along with a layout sketch at Sketch-N-Scrap and used an old Hip Kit Club kit for this layout of Sierra at work:

I ceated my background using watercolors. Then added layers of patterned papers and stitching. I added some tangled thread and chipboard stars:

I added this cute bowfrom PinkFresh Studios, I believe. I used some old alphas for my title. I used a date stamp to add my date:

I added a chipboard word phrase and some more chipboard hearts here. I added a diecut word to finish off my title:

Here's the sketch:

One of my goals this year is to use my stash! I have so much of it even after purging a bunch.
I love that I was able to use stash for this page and I love how it came out!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
