"33" Purple Pumpkin July sketch challenge!

Hello my friends and followers! 

I am in such a good mood lately!!! I guess because it is almost time for me to start my summer vacation!!!
A new month begins today and a new inspirational sketch is up for you to use at Purple Pumpkin blog!
Please go there and you will be surpsised by how many different interprentations there are to a sketch!

I went to one of my best friend's wedding last weekend and my mother took this photo of me which I love so I had to use it!!! So..this is me @ 33....and I must say it is one of my favorite layouts so far!

These cute PP girl buttons are to die for!!! And of course the paislee one is unique! I also cut a doily in half and have used both parts! One at the top of the page and one at the bottom!

I am in love with mixed media!!! Can you tell?????

I love the Purple Pumpkin border doilies!!! You can do so many things with them!!
