Get Your Sketch On - Life Is Good

For this weeks GYSO sketch, I used 7 Gypsies Lille Paper : Life is Good!!! I used Smooch Sprtiz on the Riff Raff chipboard.
For the bottom strip, I covered it with 2 way tape and then sugar beads. The effect is glorious, I wish you could see it IRL!

Get Your Sketch On - Hay Fever

 I am a week behind with this sketch, but I really liked the design so used it for this layout.
I used My Minds Eye Stella and Rose pp and Prima bling.
The title and die cut shapes are cut with my Cricut and the Country Life cartridge.
