The Road Less Traveled

Happy Monday morning all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. Mine was a bit hectic, but I enjoyed it. It's reveal time again at Let's Get Sketchy and so I'm sharing the layout that I've done for the new sketch reveal
For this I used MME "Joy" woodgrain from the Stella and Rose collection along with MME 29th Street Market Fresh "Outdoors" Spring greens and Fresh "Brothers" Sidewalk chalk papers. I distressed the layers with my Prima distresser. Then I did a little subtle stamping on the background with Color Box in "Alabaster" and some bubble wrap. Placed a strand of burlap twine on the background then layered my photo mat on top. Sorry for the slight glare on the photo, for some reason I just couldn't get rid of the glare- no matter how many photos I took.  Let's blame the gloss finish ok? The flowers are a mix from Petaloo, Prima, and my stash. The cute resin birds are by Prima. The metal trinkets are from my stash. And I believe the alphas are "Documented" Simple Stories.
And here is this week's fabulous sketch designed by Ashley Horton
Thanks for taking a peek! I truly appreciate your time and comments! Have a great day!
