Remember This Moment

Check out the lovely sketch at My Creative Sketches this month, by Christine Meyer.

I used papers from Glitz Design for my DT layout (found among my stash), and did lots of layering with the various embellishments comprising wood, metal and flowers.

I also double-mounted the photo with cardstock as well as patterned paper from DCWV, and punched the top and bottom edges of the patterned paper with Martha Stewart Crafts' 'Pansy' edge punch. I then further trimmed the bottom edge of the paper with some lace.

Here are some close-ups. I added some dew drops to the layout to give it some added texture and dimension.

Now hop on over to the MCS blog for more inspiration, and check out the amazing prize that's been put together for this month's winner. And do come and join in the fun - I'm looking forward to seeing all your wonderful layouts!
