Baby Robin - Sketches in Thyme

There is a new sketch over at Sketches in Thyme today!  Even though it's not my turn to show you an example this week, I wanted to share a layout to remind you of the challenge.  Head on over and give it a try!

Here is the sketch this week from Scrapiopath along with my take on it:



As you can see, I flipped the sketch and kept straight lines.  But it's recognizable all the same.  Just a little note from me - always feel comfortable doing what you want with a sketch.  These are your legacy pages, so you have to like the finished work!!  Anyway, we have had a lot of fun nature in our yard this spring and early summer, so I wanted to capture some of that for this year's scrapbook.  These are pictures of one of the baby robins I was telling you about in an earlier post.  By this time, the mama robin had left and the new bird was sitting in the shrub.  It's hard to test your wings alone and fly!

Items used:  Basic Grey Origins; CTMH black cardstock, bitty sparkles, sticker and paper butterflies; Elle's Studio tag; Mark Richard black gems; American Crafts Thickers; Bazzill flowers; random ribbon

Omigosh! This is so gorgeous .. I canm't stop looking at it! Love the BG origins paper and that divine ribbon you used. This is prompting me to look and see if I have any of my Origins collection left and do something with it! Fab job!
