May Lily Bee sketch- Play All Day

When I have time to scrap for "me", one of the first things I do is pick a certain collection or line of paper that I want to work with, and then go scope out that manufacturer's blog for challenges. Not only do I find some inspiration, I usually end up putting a dent in my stash, too!

The bright orange frisbee in my photo immediately reminded me of the bright orange paper of the Pinwheel collection from Lily Bee, so I worked with this month's sketch from the Lily Bee blog and a mix of their latest "Pinwheel" and "Sweet Shoppe" collections.

My dog is so photogenic!  :)  She always has her Frisbee in tow and just wants to play all day.  She would go until she passed out if she could!

I don't usually work with photos this large (or if I do, there is usually only one of them) so I kept my page fairly simple. I have to tell you that I spent about 30 minutes just picking out which patterns and colors I wanted to use on my page!  There are so many great ones in these collections!

I stuck closely to the design of the sketch, except I changed it to two larger photos (although you can see behind the photos I still stitched the four squares. I even dug into my stash and found some older Lily Bee products to use on my page, too (the journaling card and the chipboard buttons).

It feels so good to get back to the challenges and designing that I love since I have some more "me" scrappy time now!  :)

Stay scrappy my friends!
