all yours...

good Sunday morning! it's been a busy week and I'm glad i have 2 days off and some scrapping time. i really need to do some serious scrapping it's been very stressful at work lately. anyways, started last night and finished this LO for Design Dollies latest sketch challenge and color challenge using brown, red, & yellow. i tried to make it as simple as i have tendency to adding too much but i think i did good on this one.

this is a photo of me my dear husband 3 years ago, my Joseph's first birthday. i like this photo because were both smiling. LOL! Lately I've been in love with adding laces, ribbons, and fabric to my LO's which gives the LO more texture and depth. on this one i gathered a small piece of fabric and place it in between the torn paper on the right upper corner and for some volume i layered multiple strips of fabric and laces glued them in place.
i made the tiny flowers added glimmer mist and place pearl in the middle, twirled some floral wire and ribbon for vines. Looks pretty simple right? it took me 4-5 hours to finish this one. LOL! i had fun doing this LO though. TFL!
