Disneyland - 1999 ~ SOUS Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!!  Happy Friday...  It's time for another fun sketch over at Stuck On U Sketches and this one is from Patti Hutchinsen...
As you can see I used the general design, but definitely made it my own.  Instead of using 3 photos, I decided to use a panoramic photo of me and my DH standing in front of The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland while on a family vacation back in 1999..  And since it was my husband and I, I wanted to use a heart instead of a circle...  Hope you like it!!

Here are a few close ups:

Here you can see my distressed edges, the beautiful lace frame I picked up at Creative Keepsakes Convention this last September in San Marcos, the heart chipboard that was in one of my Swirlydoos Kits, Chipboard letters, Stickles (turquoise), Bazzill Cardstock Borders (black) and Cuttlebug Vine..

I'm really trying to stay with my New Year's Resolution and do some journaling on my layouts......

And here is a Petaloo -Velvet & Lace Peach Flower, Prima Vine, and Prima Say it in Crystals Swirl with Lace-Black..

Here are a few other challenges this will qualify for:
If The Shoe Fits ~ Friendship -- I don't have a closer friend than my DH
Alphabet Challenge Blog ~ L- Lady - I consider myself a lady, sometimes
Charisma Cardz Challenge ~ Magic Numbers ~  Summer, 1999
Raise The Bar ~ N.E.W. (Nesties, Embellishments and White)
Paper Cutz Challenge ~ It's your choice
Fun at Fairy Knoll ~ Chocolate

Here is the scrappy list of things I used on this layout:
SU Basic Black CS
Basic Grey - Max & Whiskers Collection - love this paper!!!!
Petaloo - Velvet & Lace Peach Flower
Prima Say it in Crystals-swirl with Lace
Chipboard Heart ~ Swirlydoos
Chipboard Letters
Stickles ~ turquoise
Bazzill Die Cut Cardstock Borders
Serena Sullivan Die Cut Frame from CKC

Be sure and check out the other fabulous layouts from the girls over here!!  And then why not give it a try?!!  We would love to have you play along with us, if you do, be sure and upload it so we can all see it!!
Have an awesome day!!!
Hugs!!

Let me just tell you, after seeing this LO, I am going to really go back into creating LO's, lol! I have been neglecting that side for a bit now! This is a really cool lo you have done and I love the fact that your hubby is your top friend! Thx for playing with us this week at "The Shoe"!

Amazing as always! I really like your title placement, but it's all worthy of a nice long viewing with a great cup of coffee.

So...I've been playing a little catch up on my most favorite blogs this morning and I am loving allllllllll the posts!
I have got to tell you how much I adore your uses of pp's. Always so creative and everything flows so well...
I am kinda dying to see what you'd do with some real brights (like that bright one you did..gosh I forget which baby it was but the colors were inspired by the play mat that the baby was on...
Ok, anyways, LOL, I adore this so much...love the heart and the fitting photo inside and also the printed paper inside as well...really super neat!!! And great photo too!!!

I love your layout - its so beautiful. The papeers and the white lace look great contrasting against each other. Like you I find journalling very difficult; I either hide it or don't do it!!
