"On Cloud Nine" by Noey Hunt
Products used - Papers: Creative Memories (background), Bo Bunny (pink dots), My Mind's Eye (clouds); Embellishments: Making Memories (journaling blocks), Heidi Grace (rubons); Tools: Cricut Lyrical Letters cartridge (baby shower and stork), Ashlyn's Alphabet (title)

I stayed pretty true to the sketch this week. It was a great opportunity to sneak in little supporting photos for this event.

In a few places, I dropped a layer of paper strips if I thought there was enough going on. And I decided to use a stork instead of the hearts to fully implement the theme of this layout.

Loved this sketch when I first saw it but worried about all the tiny little photos. Why didn't it occur to me to swap them out for a 4x6. I gotta get into this sketch thing more and learn to think outside the box.

Great job on your layouts, Lynette and Noey.

Christina, Lynette and Noey you all did great on your layouts. I can't wait to see what everyone created for the Happy Day Simple Stories Challenge on Friday. Based on the layouts so far, I know they will be awesome.
