I am entering this layout over at it is using a photo of my darling Mum and Dad taken a while ago. It makes me smile as this is my Dad taking a photo of the two of them at arms length which in its self is funny as he nearly always would chop your head off.
I used the sketch provided by Emilie for this months challenge

I used Loire Valley Collection from Kaisercraft at I chose Osmunda and Celandine (what fab names) I also used plain cardstock from them too.
Inks were black soot and fired brick by Tim Holtz
Spellbinders dies were Ovals and Blossom 5
Cricut cartridge was "walk in my garden" for the smile cut at 1 3/4 and shadow
Creative Imaginations bare elements for the gloss dome.

Here is a slightly closer look at the photo.

Thanks for looking
