I have been a busy little bee... scrapping like crazy!  So, there will be several posts today.

This layout was submitted at Sketches With Color for their Jan 1 - Challenge 1, which was to use the sketch, the color combo plus a handmade banner.

Here's the sketch:

 The color palette:

And this is what I created using all the requirements: the sketch, the color combo and a handmade banner:
 This is the three of us at the airport, right before our daughter left for Basic Training.  A sweet lady was watching me continue to set the timer on my camera then "run" to get into the photo and asked if she could take a photo for us.  How cool is that?  

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV, Colorbok
Gems: Forever in Time, Studio 112, Glitterazzi
Metal Title: Basic Grey
Gold Cording

Here's my hand made banner.  The edges of each banner was distressed with a couple banners having ribbon on them and finally, bling was added on each banner.

Gems were added on each end of the metal tag.

A closer look at a portion of my banner.
Various flowers were added, keeping close to the color palette.  

This photo gives you a better look at the various gems added to the flower centers.
And one final look at the banner my sweet banner.  

Thanks for stopping by!
