EAD Monday Hop - Happy

Happy Monday!  It's time to jumpstart your week with a little EAD inspiration!  If you arrived here from the crafty Jenn's blog - Double N Designs, then you are in the right spot.  If not - head back to the EAD Designs blog!  I have been hoarding these little Gnome stickers for a few weeks and I am soo excited that I finally used them - love them!  
Garden Gnomes
I had so much fun working on the Cricut Circle challenge on Friday that I decided to try another sketch challenge.  For today's layout I used the latest Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  If you don't like participating in the current challenges, make sure to check out Sketchy Thursdays anyway - they have great sketches.  Even if I don't end up following a sketch exactly - it's always helpful to just look at some different layout ideas...otherwise I start to feel like I arrange my pictures exactly the same.  
Sketchy Thursdays Challenge

I really wanted to use the blue and white polka dot paper for my photo mats, but I didn't have enough on hand...oh well, they will soon be covered with pictures anyway!  If I am still not satisfied once I add pictures, then I will just add some additional stitching around the blue photo mats.  Hi, my name is Lauren, and I am addicted to my gel pen.

Thanks so much for hopping along with us today!  
The next stop on today's hop is the very talented
