Life Is... (The Scrappiest Sketches)

I am in love with the new Simple Stories collections, especially Life Documented. I can't wait to use up all my scraps to make cards and perhaps a mini album, and then i'll just have to buy myself some more - hehehe  Today, i'm sharing with you a double-page layout i've made using that line, and based on two separate sketches from The Scrappiest.  My layout was also inspired by a beautiful poem by Mother Teresa entitled "Life Is". 

Life Is...
The left page is based on Sketch#119.
(Yes, i know, the photos are very blurry. I can't wait to see Mr. Sun stick around here for more than a couple hours at a time!)
The page on the right is based on Sketch#120.

Now for a closer look at the poem - These are truly words to live by.
The title was done with the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge.
Flowers are from Prima. The fancy chipboard leaves are from The Dusty Attic and the simpler ones have been cut by hand out of cardstock.
Some of my favorite elements of the Life Documented collection are the color combinations, all the different journaling tags and boxes, and of course the banners! LOVE the banners!

Now thanks for looking! Be sure to check out the Simple Stories blog for a look at their other beautiful collections AND visit The Scrappiest for lots of sketchy inspiration! :)
