My EVERYTHING

I recently created a page inspired by one of the wonderful sketches at PageMaps. This is one of the August sketches.



This is my interpretation of the sketch. Instead of using three photos, I wanted to showcase just one, and I used a tag and other elements in place of the additional photos. You can click on the photo to see the journaling. I used My Mind's Eye papers, tags, and words ("special" and "unique"). The gorgeous butterfly transparency is also by My Mind's Eye. The chipboard heart is by Scrapworks. The little tag by the chipboard heart and the gorgeous brad in the large tag are both by Making Memories. Under the photo, I stamped an Autumn Leaves swirl stamp. At the top of the page, I added some awesome Maya Road sheer ribbon. This stuff is so cool!! I really LOVE the way this page turned out!

It's really cooled down around here. Crazy, but I like it! It's going to be 70 today, and we got 2.5" of rain yesterday. We really needed it. The lawn was very thirsty! I hope you all have a great Friday and a fantastic weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
