My Scraps & More Sketch #114 - Finders Keepers

Here I am with yet another layout for the My Scraps and More Sketch challenge!
Another very inspiring sketch. To be honest, since I don't have much time for scrapbooking now that I'm back at work full time, I'm really only participating in a challenge if I find the sketch interesting and inspiring. This one I do :).

I followed the sketch pretty closely because I simply like it the way it is! I chose mostly papers and embellies (rub-ons, enamel hearts, puffy stickers and stamps) from Amy Tan's stunning Finders Keepers collection. The green and yellow papers are from Dear Lizzy and so are those amazing thickers! I love tall thin letters!
Wouldn't be me I guess if I hadn't used a cut file :). I've been wanting to use this file from The Cut Shoppe for so long and when I saw the sketch it came to my mind right away! I did modify it by adding some extra rows and columns to have more squares.Then I backed each of them with different pattern papers. Once done, I added the photos and all the embellishments. I was planning to add 3 flair buttons and thought I'd add some tulle and some stitching behind them to make them pop more. But then I liked how the tulle and stitching looked like on their own so I skipped the buttons this time. :)

So here's my interpretation! Thanks for looking. x
