Recently I have been looking for some new blogs to follow, fresh ideas and inspiration. I stumbled on a few blogs that I had not known were out there, and boy am I happy that I found them.

The first one is My Little Sketch Book. I'm sure a lot of you know about this blog because they do have 420 followers! I really like this blog, she has some AMAZING sketches. I decided to play along with this recent sketch.

I tried to keep as close to the sketch as I could because I really love this sketch. Here is what I came up with using it.

I'm very happy with how this turned out and the sketch was very easy to follow. I had a lot of fun making all of the flowers using a 1" circle punch for the large ones and cutting 1/2" circles on my Cricut for the small ones.
If you haven't checked out My Little Sketch Book, you really should!

I'm working on a few more layouts using sketches I found on the other blog I stumbled on. I'll share those and their blog info with you later this week.

Hope you are having a great day!
