I almost always use a sketch for my projects, but I just winged it for this one. I absolutely love how it turned out! It'll be tucked safely away in my album until we finally have some green grass outside.
The patterned papers in this layout are all from the Metropolitan line by American Crafts; I love buying coordinating sets because it takes the guess-work out of matching papers; everything is ready to go! The cardstock is from Bazzil; chipboard houses (covered w/ patterned paper) by Maya Road; letters by American Crafts; circle punches by EK Success; eyelets by American Crafts.
