Another Layout for Aunt's Birthday Album ~ WAS CHOSEN AS A TOP 3 OVER AT LASTING MEMORIES!

Hello everyone!!!  Hope your week is going great!!  Yesterday we had 1 and 1/2 inches of rain over at the farm and we had 3/4ths of an inch here at the house...  So thank ful, but we need so much more.. Can't wait to see how much it helped the pasture and the oats....  Anyway... I have another layout to share with you... This one is for Rick's Aunt Leola's 90th Birthday Album and I used the sketch over at SOUS..  I finally found a little time to play along...  Nanne, I love your sketch...
I've used 2 photos but the bottom one I cut a lot of the busy background off of it and layered it over a part of the first one...  I really like the results..  

Here are a few close ups...

I just love this beautiful paper from Fab Scraps.. You can also see a little of the distressed edges, lace, ribbon, pearls, and some of my fussy cut flowers...


Here is my hidden journaling tag, distressed edges, and a little more bling..


This is a close up of the whole bottom part...  So many details in this pretty paper!!

Here are a few challenges this will qualify for...
Lasting Memories ~ Hidden Journaling
CES Challenge ~ Roses and Ribbon
Divas By Design ~ Monochromatic
The ABC Challenge ~ D for Dazzle

Here is a list of scrappy things I used on this layout...
SU Bravo Burgundy CS and Ink
Fab Scraps ~ Heritage Small Floral Collection
SU Very Vanilla CS
Martha Stewart Punch
Prima Say It In Pearls
Ribbon/Lace

Thanks for dropping by!!
Have a wonderful day!!
Hugs!!
