I used Doodlebug stickers rather than journaling a whole column. I used a binder punch on the Sweethearts paper.
Doodlebug had a banner sticker on the sticker sheet from last year that was just so cute. I added some bling at the tied end. I also used border stickers above and below the strip of Sweethearts paper.
This is the design that I used from Page Maps 2 by Becky Fleck. Using a sketch is definitely an easy way to get started on a layout. I will now refer to this book whenever I am stuck for a design idea since it helps to make the job go by so much quicker!
