Sketches in Thyme # 94

Hello everyone! It's time for another awesome sketch over at Sketches in Thyme! Today we have a double for all of those double page fans! :) Here is the sketch we get to play with:
I know many of you have a preference for double page layouts, but me... I have always preferred the singles. Even when I have lots of pictures of the same event, I will just do multiple *single* pages. But that's just me- just a preference. With that said... I decided to turn this double pager into a single. That's what I love about sketches- how you can make them work for you, and your particular projects. Here is mine:
I got an ides to do something different for the 'circle' shape in the sketch from the patterned paper I was using. It had a whole sheet of hexagon shapes, so I decided to fussy cut some of them and arrange them in a circular pattern.
I utilized a lot of the coordinating stickers that came in the paper pack as embellishments, and to create clusters around the page.
I still love my Smash date stamp, and this little date banner provided the perfect option to add a date. As you may now, I am not a big journaler, and when I do I keep it short and sweet, sometimes just a date and age.
I LOVED the placement of the title in the sketch. For mine, I layered some letter stickers over some other strips. The chevron patterned paper was fussy cut and then popped on foam dots for dimension. I did the same with the other one below the photos. And then added some stickers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today- and please be sure to join us! All you have to do is create a project using the sketch and link up!!
