Happy Summer Memories Layout

Layouts with a diagonal orientation are always a challenge for me, but I couldn't resist trying to create something using the May double sketch from Stick It Down. When you run papers diagonally across a page, a 12" long piece of paper is too short to fit all the way across the page, so I had to piece together the striped paper strip in a few places. Hopefully you can't tell!
Recipe:
Magnolia papers (MME)
Cocoa ink
Pure Brown marker (Zig)
Hopscotch PML card
Paradise & Floret Just Blooms paper flowers
White Daisy & Chocolate brads
Ribbon Boutique ribbon (Berwick)
Decorative brads (from my stash)
Dreamin' Big Complements "happy"
Pattern: Stick It Down May 2019 double page sketch

Challenges: Scrap With Stacy photo inspiration - I was inspired to add pink flowers to the layout, even though there are actually no flowers on the plants my kids are watering! I also used a script "happy" just like in the photo.
