Sketch n Scrap Layout; Sketch #287

I'm still behind in my scrapbooking and the best way to catch up guessed it...scrapbooking! Using sketches gives me a jump off point and helps keep the creative juices flowing. Sketch n Scrap (SNS) posts two cards and two single page layout sketches per month and they are fabulous!

Today I'm working with layout sketch #287. Here's the sketch:

And here's my layout:

I'm also participating in the Iron Crafter Challenge YouTube Hop.

Join a fun group of crafty peeps each month as we take on the Iron Crafter Challenge! Each month Anna from @piececraftlove or Tara from @thepapersnob will select a challenge ingredient to use on a layout. This hop goes live on the THIRD FRIDAY of the month. There's a hop on YouTube and Instagram to show how we used the challenge ingredient(s) for the month. The mystery item for the month will be announced on the first of each month.

The mystery challenge ingredient for December is FLAIR.  Now, I don't have any FLAIR in my stash, but I had these flat back embellishments for years. In fact, I checked the back and the year is 2013. I'm guessing I had them at least that long. I pulled out a pink frilly paper pack from Authentique and it coordinated beautifully with the fancy pink decor of The Madonna Inn. This is located near Pismo - not sure the exact town. I went full on with a pink & pretty theme for this layout and I love it!

For the YouTube hop, here's the playlist with ALL the videos of the participants:
