Genuine & Quirky LO for Use Your Stuff Challenge

Good Morning to you :) been busy this month with LOAD and that seems to make the blog just a bit quiet :) Next month is Calvinball and that will cause the same as it seems when I get creative I don't have the time to blog about it too :) Something I'll have to work on I guess there has to be a happy medium between the 2.
This week's challenge over at Use Your Stuff is to use a sketch to influence your project, you are to pick your own sketch. I went over to Let's Get Sketchy for my inspiration and this layout is also inspired from LOAD217 Day 22: Selene is the goddess of the day. the prompt is What is you personality? Are you shy or outgoing? What helps you shine? I went with my personality and as this is a Greek Mythology LOAD also my astronomy sign.
I had a blast creating this layout and loved that doily that was in that sketch from Let's Get Sketchy :
I shifted over the title area so I could add a spot for the journaling for the prompt. The doily is one I got in a flea market find of doilies got a whole bag full for just a buck!
 I used one of my favorite pattern papers for the layout been hoarding these paper (still got one left :) thought this would be a good place to use it :) Use some pink from the photo too on the layout. I used 2 of the project life cards, the heart enamels, & chipboard pieces from my counterfeit kit: A Few of My Favorite Things. The dimensional stickers I had in my basket of stickers that I pulled for a challenge last month for the 100 pattern paper challenge facebook group.
 A fun way to create the title with the 2 different fonts

 The other spot that I added the same embellishments and the chipboard arrow too. Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see your creation linked up at Use Your Stuff challenge blog.
