Hi blogging friends!  I created this layout for SOUS challenge #4.  Although the sketch was not a difficult sketch to interpret, still I struggled because I couldn't make up my mind how I wanted to interpret it!  Needless to say, 8 hours later this is what I came up with.  Hope you enjoy viewing it and it inspires you in some way.  Please leave me a comment on what you think.

I did this layout for stuck on u sketch challenge # 3.  This is my first time entering a blog challenge and I must say I really enjoyed it!  This layout actually changed three times.  Every background just was to busy!  Anywho, I hope you like it.

Recipe for layout:   All cardstock is by Best Occasion (Provincial Fare and Earthtones) collections
The backgroumd is Provincial Fare, The borders were embossed with birds and swirls embossing folder. I don't measure, so I don't know what size they are. The two small birds, flowers, hearts, and swirls were all cut at 2.50" on regular cut then I cut the flowers and heart on shadow cut. I used Home Decor for all cuts except where noted. The large bird was cut at 3" and shadowed.  the word "forever" was cut at 1.50". The swirls were cut at 2".  Sprigs are a Martha Stewart branch punch.  Flowers and hearts are pop dotted for dimension. The white caption for forever is cut with Storybook cartridge at 3.50" (I think, sorry!)
