Lasting Memories 300th Challenge blog hop

GHello everyone! Welcome to Lasting Memories 300th challenge blog hop!

Several of our design team members are playing along and offering up some blog candy, so be sure to stop by each of their blogs. You should have arrived here by way of Lori's blog . If you get lost along the way, or just want to start from the beginning, you can find the complete list on the Lasting Memories blog.

Our theme for July is "Childhood Games". Each week you will make your layout based on the photo/game provided. Our first challenge is "Marbles". Here is your inspiration photo:
For my layout this week I was inspired to paint with marbles....

Here's the page in progress after rolling around the paint covered marbles on a white piece of cardstock.   
and  here is the finished product which was also inspired by my
Scrappy friends Challenge sketch combined with Rochelle's this or that.
I stuck close to the sketch and Used a leaf stick pin that I bought back in 2014. Yikes glad to get that used but have so many more.  I've been ruthlessly cleaning out my stash and found this cute Stamp set that I've never used so I'm offering it up as a little extra goodness for hopping along with us. 
 Leave me a quick comment  about what you have unused in your stash for your chance to win.
Thanks so much for hopping along with us! Next up on the hop is Tina.
