Texas Girl ~ Savannah ~ Top 5 Winner at Scrap It With a Song!

Hi everyone, it's Thursday and I guess you know what that means..... Another challenge over at The Pink Elephant!!!  This week we have a sketch with a little twist...  Here is the sketch:

And the twist is to use some kind of fabric on your layout this week..  which includes felt...  This is a photo of GD Savannah taken in June...  I just love the wrought iron bench she is sitting on, so I tried to create around that element.... (rustic, country..  you get the picture..)  As you can see I kinda wandered from the sketch just a little, but you can still see the "bones"..... Instead of a big square I decided to use a circle.. and of course I had to add flowers!!!  Hope you like it!!  
Here's my list of scrappy things I used:
Kaisercraft ~ Evelyn
BoBunny ~ Beautiful Life Stripe
Creative Imaginations ~ Marah Johnson ~ Lotus
Basic Grey ~ sugared-delicious
Doily
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Black Cherry and Pearl
Prima ~ Voila Felt Ribbon
Prima Flutter Vines
Prima Gallery Roses
Dusty Attic ~ Hanging Sign
Tim Holtz ~ Ranger Distress Crackled Paint - dried marigold
Tim Holtz Distress Inks ~ Aged Mahogany, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo
Making Memories Antique coper lacy brads
MS Butterfly Punch

Here are a few challenges that this layout will qualify for:
The Pink Elephant ~ Sketch plus fabric
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge ~ Use your favorite colors
Flutterby Wednesdays ~ Open
Pile It On ~ A Little Bit Country ~ A Little Bit Rock 'n Roll
Scrap It With a Song ~ Jessica Simpson " With You" "southern girl with her levis on...."
Penny's Paper Challenge ~ Anything goes
Cupcake Craft Challenge ~ Lace  ~  Thank you Faye for pointing out the lace doily..

Oh Fern, I had to zoom on this one to take in all the magnificent detail you put on there. Those flowers are so beautiful. The laser cut little thingy behind the photo and flowers is stunning, so is the photo of Savannah!
