I was so excited to see this month's sketch from My Mind's Eye and Pagemaps! Love all of the circles and I have a photo I've been wanting to scrap that fits this perfectly.
Don't you love it?

Here is my try at this sketch.

Please excuse the colors - the bottom is a bit more accurate. It is a terribly cloudy, windy, chilly day in the northeast. This is a photo of my dh and I on the day before we got married. We were helping my mom set up her house for it.  I had so much fun using the Vintage Nostalgic Collection, along with Everyday Fun stamps, Follow Your Heart stamps and Nutmeg Hanging Out stamps (all from My Mind's Eye) and I inked the edges of everything with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I cut all of the circles, flower shapes, tag shapes, photo corners and the photo mat using my Silhouette Cameo and files from the Silhouette store. I also used some Bazzill cardstock for the hearts, a Jenni Bowlin for Fiskars tag and the Fiskars heart punch, Basic Grey Candy Buttons and a small tag, my favorite black foam American Crafts Thickers, a lovely Webster Pages Cameo Pushpin, Echo Park Photo Freedom labels, Stephanie Barnard for Clearsnap ink, bling from my stash, my Scotch ATG, Tombow Mono Aqua glue and some foam tape.

Thank you My Mind's Eye for a great sketch challenge and for the inspirational Vintage Nostalgia Collection - and thank you for looking.
