It's a dreary, rainy day today. Ugh! Everyone says we need the rain.... but I say we could've had a few more days of sun!! :)
The layout for today was submitted at Colorful Creations for their May Sketch a Thon... for May 9th (ANNEMAY). FUN sketch to work with!
Here's the sketch:
This is what I created:
Hubby and I in 2000. Love this photo!
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV
Sizzix Leaf Die
Glitter Gems: Home Made
Title Sticker: K&Co.
I added a couple of the vellum leaves under the flower and a glitter gem for the center.
To make sure I had a definite circle, I placed a circle onto my page and added the gems to the outside of the circle... otherwise, you wouldn't have been able to tell it was a circle... because of the crookedness! :)
The biggest challenge was finding gems that were the same size. I have a tendency to make them different sizes!
Here's the flower cluster to the right of the photo. I used several different flowers and tucked the vellum leaves under them.
A closer look at the vellum leaves.
The title sticker was added just below the photo.
A better look at the flowers and gems.
Rather than add the lace and ribbon straight across the page, I broke it up a bit, tucking it under the photo mat. Just for something different. Love how it turned out!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
