Dating

      This is a fun 2-photo layout sketch from Sketch N Scrap. You have all month to upload a picture of the layout you make using it. It was so interesting to design the borders for the patterned paper in the center. I am looking forward to seeing how the challenge entrants treat it.
 
Sketch #146

      Here are two pictures of my brother and his wife taken when they were dating in the late '60s. The patterned paper in the background is very hard to see in the picture. I chose it because it is so delicate. I then framed it with the most beautiful thing I could find in the craft room. I chose this lace, then made a paper border to the inside using roses on gray wood grain. Finally, I embellished it with die cut hearts and gray enamel dots.
