MMD Sketch #24

I've got a new sketch from Miracles Momma Designs to share with you this morning! It's an awesome 2 pager and as you can see from my layout, it can work great for 1 pagers too...

Supplies: Echo Park A Walk In The Park Collection - Mother Nature, Tree Tops, Element Cards; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; Fiskars Flit On By Butterfly Punch; Pink Paislee Cushies - Meringue; Autumn Leaves Button; Just The Way You Are Font

I love that this sketch gives you so many places to use pictures, yet still gives you tons of journaling room. I used the left side as inspiration to make this Easter layout and it worked perfectly for the 4 pictures I wanted to use. :)

If you like the sketch and use it, I'd love to see what you do! Also, make sure you stop by the Miracles Momma Designs blog to see some other great examples of the DT using the sketch too. :) Thanks for stopping by to say hello!
