I knew I wanted to use the rest of my burlap ribbon and some brown and colonial white ribbon, so I measured those out and followed the sketch. The sketch had three rows with five boxes in each row. I knew my pictures would need to be small in order to fit them all in. I started with this map above and then cut everything out and played around with it. Here is my finished layout:
I ended up changing a few things from my original map and the sketch but I am loving it! I used a ton of retired product (burlap ribbon, brown and colonial white ribbon, skylark assortment, colonial white rosette ribbon, and the pin clips). Talk about stash busting! I used two skylark picture my life cards for the title and journaling. Next up is repeating an element on a layout. Super excited about trying this challenge!
