Hi everyone!!!  Yea!!!  I've got another layout completed for my DH's Aunt's Birthday Album..  I have just about 1 month to finish it and I still have a lot of photos to go through....  I also used the sketch from Sketch Savvy for this sketch....

For those of you that are familiar with my style.. you may have noticed that I'm a little out of my comfort zone.  I'm a 1 photo scrapper most of the time....  But for this album I have sooooo many photos I'm having to use 2 and 3 photos on each layout..  And I'm having a lot of fun searching for multi photo sketches that I  normally wouldn't use..

Here are a few close ups...

Here you can see the beautiful Prima Flower, the Sizzix Bigz Vine DieCut, Prima Say It In Pearls, Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Borders and the Spellbinders Parisian Accent Corner Die Cut...

Here you can see the hidden journaling tag, Pearls, Prima Say It In Pearls, more Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace borders, Spellbinders Parisian Accent corner and Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes...

Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Borders, Spellbinders Parisian Accents, Prima Say In In Pearls..
