Stuck Sketches August sketch

I loved the sketch over at Stuck Sketches this month, so I decided to drag out some of my stash I have been hoarding and play along!

This was the sketch

and my take 

My new passion is walking, I got a FitBit for Christmas and it has changed my life! Sounds a bit daft but it's true, I became totally aware of how unfit I was, I'm rubbish at running but walking I can do for miles and miles.....

I was inspired to stitch on my page after I watched a video from this class by Ashley Horton. As I was documenting the fact that I walk I used my sketch pen to trace the footprints and I then stiched around the outline. I can see me doing this lots more!

I have lots of embellishments in my stash and I found a pack of Pink Fresh Studio cardstock die cuts and clustered them up on my page. I moved the Ampersand from the main cluster on the sketch over the to the middle of my 2 photos. My mantra is "Just Keep Walking", when my legs are tired or the weather is bad I repeat that over and over, til my walk is done.

When I was visiting Debbi last year I bought these cute owl stickers in Michaels, he adds a cute extra element down at the bottom of the page. I really went to town with different embellishments including some cork dots that I purchased on the same trip.
I followed the sketch quite closely, well for me anyways!

Thanks for visiting today
