Sketches in Thyme Design Team Post!!

Hello All! I am so very excited to be able to announce that I was chosen to be a part of the talented Sketches in Thyme design team!! I have always wanted to design for a sketch challenge blog, so this is very fun for me. Sketches in Thyme has some wonderful sketches that you will LOVE! Be sure to head over and check out what the rest of the talented design team has cooked up for you and play along! Today we are working with sketch # 92 and here is my project:
 Here is the sketch I had to work with- a really fun one this week:
I used the new American Crafts Pumpkin Patch line. I have had a hard time finding good autumn/fall themed papers that I liked this year, so I was happy when I found this line. I think it went with my cute photo of my nephew Sevyn perfectly. I cut a gear shape from the Elegant Edges cart (instead of a circle) because I thought it was more 'boy'. Kept the gear theme with the smaller circle and the border. One thing that I love about American Crafts is they have those matching border strips on all of their papers. I used one over my border piece- it also covered up some background in the photo that I didn't really like :)
I used two different font cartridges (Opposites Attract and Alphalicious) along with some letter stickers from Echo Park to make my title. I like that this sketch allows for a longer title if you need one.
I had a lot of fun layering some little clusters around the page using the coordinating stickers from the line. I absolutely LOVE this burlap ticket- I need 20 more of these!
Some more layering and a better look at the border strip that I added...
My last cluster- when you have coordinating products like this it makes quick and easy work of embellishing a layout.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today, and thank you for stopping by! Be sure to stop by Sketches in Thyme as well and join in on the fun!!
