Country Bumpkin ~ Savannah

Hi everyone, I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day and took a moment to thank the men and women who make this the most wonderful place to live!!
We didn't have much going on this weekend so I managed to get 3 layouts done, but 2 are for next Thursdays Sketches in Thyme and The Pink Elephant Scrap Challenges..  So be sure and check out both of these fabulous challenge blogs Thursday, and you won't want to miss my layouts either...
This layout was for pure~dee fun!!  I started out using the sketch from Stuck On U Sketches, and yes I swayed just a little... But I have done this gorgeous sketch before when it came out in my Swirlydoos kit and I must say I followed it pretty closely at that time, so I wanted to make this one a little different... Anyhooo "That's My Story And I'm Stickin' To It!!!"   Well, see for yourself .  Here's this weeks sketch, which by the way is from Beggahuna and pretty awesome!! And now
go and check out my layout here, pretty close, right!!  What did I tell you!!   Anyhoo I had sooo much fun with this layout.. 
Friday I went shopping at my favorite stamp store, Archiver's and boy did I do some damage!!!  Among other things I bought these cute 3-D frames and flowers.  The frames just screamed Savannah and I sooo wanted to use them on this sketch, so I went through my photos and found these of Savannah feeding the little goats and bunnys... and the rest is history...  I really luv the way it turned out and I hope you do too!
This layout also qualifies for a few challenges out there, which are:
Creative Card Crew ~ Pink and Green
Incy Wincy ~ For the Little Ones
Flutterby Wednesday ~ Open with Butterfly
Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ Summer Delights
Here is the list of scrappy things I used:
SU Certainly Celery CS and Ink
K&Company Paper Doll Die Cut Paper Pad masked with
The Crafter's Workshop Doodle Flower with
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Cherry Blossom
Melody Ross Designer Collection ~ Layered Frames

Pink Crystal Stickers
Webster' Trim Pink loopy ribbon
Prima Flutter Vine
MS Garden Trellis Punch
SU Bordering Blue CS
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Frost
The Paper Studio ~ Alphabet Glitter Stickers
Prima Say it in Crystals
Butterfly Sticker ?
The pink jewel flowers came in one of my Swirlydoos kits and I don't know what they are called.  I've had them a long time and didn't know what to use them on, but I think they work well on this layout!!
Thanks for dropping by!!
Have a wonderful week!!!
I luv your visits, so please check back soon!!!
