This is my latest project for Sketches in Thyme using the following sketch.  For this project that featured circles, I decided to use action shots of my daughter playing soccer this past fall.  In addition, I felt the background paper that featured paint splatters and a soccer ball were perfect to highlight these particular pictures.  A few word stickers and strategically placed circle cut outs enabled this project to come together in no time flat.

Hello blog followers!  This is my latest project for Use Your Stuff created using the theme "Newly Acquired" as a guide.  In other words, we were asked to create a project using something new we either recently purchased or received for the holidays. A few weeks back, I purchased Crate Paper's, "Hey Santa" line specifically for my 2020 Christmas pics which I used for this project.  Sadly, I realized at the tail end of making my project that the stickers that matched my paper were misprinted...Where the stickers were cut didn't match up with the picture.  So I had to get very creative and use a few embellishments from another Crate Paper Christmas line to complete the project. To pull this layout together, I was inspired by a sketch from my former design team 2 Broke Girls when designing this project.
