This Makes Me Happy

I'm here to share my first layout as part of the wonderful team of Mavens

The sketch this week is SO MUCH FUN
and you'll be blown away with what the team has done with it.

Without further ado, the fabulous sketch:

Here's mine:
"In a perfect world every girl would have a daddy like you."
Photographs courtesy of Mary Littlejohn Photography.

For the title I used some ancient stickers and a Sn@p Card from Simple Stories.
Of course I cut it up. It's just what I do. 

The white background paper (Sationary Linen from Lily Bee) seemed a little too stark so I got out some Smooch ink and flicked it all over the place.

And the swirls are just doodles.
Don't be afraid to get that pen out! It's only paper after all.

Other products used:
Antique Micro Dot paper {Bazzill}
Love Bird paper {Studio Calico}
Portfolio Collection {Pink Paislee}
Laced with Grace papers {Glitz Design}
Witch Hazel Mesh Tape {October Afternoon}
Sketched Grey Dot Washi Tape {Freckled Fawn}
Miscellaneous pearls and gems {Prima}
B&W flowers {Making Memories}

We'd love LOVE for you to play along!

In fact, we're so excited to see what you create that S.I.T. is giving one lucky winner
