A Mothers Treasure- SOUS


Good Friday everyone.. 
We have another reveal at Stuck On U sketches today and here is my take on this weeks sketch..
Oh! and we all had a paper challenge as well..  We used the "Sugar Rush" stack by Basic Grey which were a bit out of the norm for me, but its great to be challenged every once in a while..LOL

The photos are of my grandmother (who has passed away), my mom with my dd and the in the big photo is the four of us all together.. It was taken at my cousins wedding back in 1997.. Its the only photo I have of the four of us together.. I love this photo with all of my heart..

so, ladies ready for the sketch.. Here it is:

It was such a great sketch to work with and this weeks its from Pagemaps .
and we were also challenged to use the same papers that were kindly donated by:

(Basic Grey-Sugar Rush)

Here are some close ups and all of the details to making this layout:
