The Scrappiest layout sketch 50

The Scrappiest has reached their half a century mark in sketches ! 
& we're also celebrating a new DT in place this week.
There are 4 returning members of the previous DT & 6 new faces .
Do head over to check out the new inspiration

Here's the DT list to check out too : 
 ( a fellow DTer for Little Shop of Sketches ! woohoo ! )
Susan Bourgeois (returning)

My Webter's Pages Banner of the Week prize  was quickly put to use on this layout .
I wanted to use the cameos & fabric tags as much as possible 
& this week's sketch was a great prompt as to where to place them. 

I love this background patterned paper & have a renewed 
appreciation for great neutral backgrounds
 once again. 
MME is the other brand I regularly turn to for ready to use distressed ,
 neutral backgrounds in blues or off white. 

These papers are from the WP Home for the Holidays line .
Love the colors for sure & their versatility !
But my fave part of this layout is the use of the die cut tree sticker which added so much to the overall design & feel with its sheer size & color ( I'm so loving the tone on tone look at the mo too ! ).
Love the subtle music print on it .
Lots of loves here ;)
