Sketches In Thyme #94

I hope each and every one of you had a fabulous Thanksgiving.
Well, if you celebrate U.S. Thanksgiving.
If you don't, I hope you had a fabulous day anyway!

Now let's get down to business...

A new sketch from Sketches In Thyme!

It's a 2-pager, but you're more than welcome to turn it into a single page like I did:

I really didn't do much here, I let the sketch and the paper do all of the talking.

The title is a fun mix of Echo Park alpha stickers,
an ancient sticker from EK Success, and a rub-on from Luxe Designs: 

I love this quote and have no idea who it's from.
It's part of a sheet of vellum stickers that my awesome Mom sent to me a long time ago.

The cute confetti was made with my EK Success swiss cheese edger punch:

 And one of my favorite tricks for turning a single photo into two,
cut it in half and mat both pieces:

I hope you'll use this sketch and share it with us over at Sketches In Thyme.
Don't forget to stop by to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Mavens!

Paper Used:
Jillibean Soup {Christmas Eve Chowder} Dried Green Onion
Jillibean Soup {Christmas Eve Chowder} Frozen Shrimp
Doodlebug Design {Petite Prints} Bon Bon Dot-Grid
