Sketches In Thymes Sketch #158

Hello Crafters!

Today I am sharing with you my layout for Sketches in Thyme's sketch #158.  

Here's my layout:
I use a 6x6 paper pad by Bo Bunny with matching embellishments and a Heidi Swapp word title.  I also tried something different on this layout. I added bunched up thread.  I love seeing this on layouts and I always wanted to try it.  So I did! :) 

Here's the sketch created by Brenda Ragsdale:

Happy Scrappin'!
