Hi there,

Brrrrr!  It's a true Fall day and the wind is blowing... and more rain is coming...
A GREAT day to stay in and CRAFT!!  :)

Here's a layout that was submitted at Stuck On U Sketches for their September 27 Sketch Challenge.  You can see the challenge here.

This is the sketch:

I absolutely LOVE this sketch!!  

Here's my layout titled, "Together."
This photo was taken several years ago in a restaurant.

Supplies used:
Paper: K&Co., DCWV, Studio g, Colorbok
Swirly Bling
Gold Fabric
Rosettes: Home Made
Satin Flowers: Home Made
Gold Beads
Tiny Rosettes
Die Cut Page Title
Bling Butterfly

The flower cluster consists of mostly home made flowers that were made with sheer fabric and satin fabrics.  Swirly bling was tucked within the flowers.  I used gold beads for the flower centers.

Received this beautiful bling butterfly as part of a prize... and was holding off on using it... until I created this page.  Love it!

Here's a closer look at the butterfly and flower.  You can see where I put the satin fabric too close to the flame and singed the ends... which gives the flower some character... so I left it as is.

I left the cardstock in the center of the letters.  All the pp were trimmed with black cardstock.

The ribbon was a couple inches wide, so I folded it in half and scrunched it along the bottom of the photo and across the page... leaving the end trailing.

A closer look.

A closer look at this flower grouping.  I tucked a tiny rosette above the two larger flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
