Good morning everyone. I have a layout to share with you today that I created for  Page Maps Sketch Conversion Challenge where you convert a 8.5 x 11 sketch to a 12 x 12 layout.  I knew when I saw the sketch that I had to work with it. I love working with a white background, but I have to admit it's hard to get a decent picture, especially since the last few days it has been cloudy and raining here.
I snagged the adorable pictures from my friend's FB page.  When I saw them I thought of the song by Lee Ann Womack, I Hope You Dance.  I printed out the lyrics of the song and included them on my layout.

Here is the sketch we had to work with:

A closeup of the song lyrics, along with some white tickets from Purple Pumpkin
and star confetti from UmWow Studio,which I painted white and then added some glitter.

Love adding clusters to my layouts. 

A quick tip for those who want to outline shapes and a punched border.   I used a Candy Pink Zig Writer,  pen (1.22 mm tip) and placed my pieces on a scrap paper and gently guided my pen along the outer edges to create the outlined effect.  I also used this technique on the Purple Pumpkin tickets.

 Thanks for stopping by!
