A Perfect Day is...Being with You!

Once Upon a...Sketch has another great sketch to work with and the team has created awesome layouts!
When I saw the sketch, I went straight to work...just love this one!

I have flipped the sketch and made another page for my wedding album.

On this layout, I used DCWV and K&Co. papers
Some elegant lace, perfect for a wedding page. Martha Stewart lace butterfly and doily.
And of course, some of my handmade items (flowers, stick pins, pebble, and stained doily)

Here is the layout with some close up pictures...

Thank you friends are being so kind with your comments.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting.
