Hello everyone. I am sharing an 8 1/2"x11" sketch created by Pretty Little Studios. Here's my take on the sketch using photos of my little ninja. One afternoon, Edward put on his ninja turtle zip up, hat, glasses and gloves and asked if we could go outside to play. While we were outside, we found a baby boxing turtle! So very cool. I've never seen a boxing turtle so small. We put him in the shade with some grass and water. When we went back twenty minutes later, he was gone. Edward was a little bummed, but I told him that we couldn't keep him, turtles belong outside.

    A few close-ups. I like how the enamel dots makes the layout stand out more, drawing the eyes to the little details. And I love the Amsterdam paper. Such a fun combination of patterns. I even snuck some metallic paper on this layout.


I like how the little flags look clustered in the corner. It really pulls the layout together.
