Uh Oh ~ Game Over ~ StuckOnUSketches

Happy Friday everyone!!  It's time for another fabulous sketch over at StuckOnUSketches.. This week we have a sketch by Becky Fleck~  and here it is!

I told you it was fabulous, didn't I!!

The photos were taken January 17, 2010, and just so you know, here's why we still have so many leaves in January....

Yep! This is where I live..  It's my little 25 acres of heaven on earth.... and yes, every one of these trees drop their leaves in the fall...  If Rick can't drag them off with the tractor and blade, well, then they just have to blow away!!! :o)
So back to my layout...  really the photos and journaling say it all on this one... 

Here's my journaling...

And here she is jumping and laughing and .. Uh Oh, what's this???

 A snake skin.....  That look is just priceless!!!!  And needless to say that was the end of playing in the leaves!! 
Game Over!

Here you can see my great big Prima Jewel "Bling" that I added over the "O" and some of the embossed leaves which are popped up for deminision..  You can also see the Tim Holtz - elegant flourishes and the glitter flourishes..

Here are some more of those wonderful spellbinders die cut leaves...  I love the embossing on these... I just highlighted them with SU inks..

Here are a few other challenges this will qualify for:

I think I just FREAKED that you live there!
So maybe you will understand this...when Justin and I first were looking at homes, we could have bought a house that was easily twice the size or larger..but there were almost NO trees! And I couldn't do that! LOL! So we settled closer to home (my parents) with a much much smaller home in a more settled neighborhood..with trees! =o)
Thank you SO much for sharing that photo with us!
This LO is incredible and I adore the photos..too much fun! Great job as usual combining those challenges too!
