SOUS is having its Friday reveal again today and this is my take on this weeks sketch..
I really had a fun time putting this all together and got to use some of the beautiful Prima flowers I have been gathering from several online stores..LOL  so bad am I..
I buy them, but don't wanna use em...  :O)
just like to admire them in the little glass jars that I keep them in. .

and I made this layout as well, using the same sketch..

  1. Nanne I can't stop looking at this layout taking in all the magnificent details. I know I say this a lot but you really are a true inspiration. I have to agree witht the Prima flowers sometimes they are just too nice to use. I have some of the butterflies but not had a chance to use them yet, they are fab. Love the picture and the papers are just adorable, stunning layout Nanne.

  2. Nanne, each time I see one of your layouts, I think to myself, well, she can't top this one, but amazingly you do it every time!!!! Both of these layouts are just gorgeous!!!! Every detail down to the tiniest one, is absolutely amazing!!! I luuuuv your work gf!!!! XXXXX

  3. Nanne, these 3 layouts are just so fantastic! You have been a roll this week! Wow! I'm especially drawn to the Generations one .. brings a tear to my eyes .. Now that I'm the matriarch of the family, it feels a little wierd. Love all your flowers both yours and the Prima. You've really outdone yourself this week. And hmmm- seems like I said that last week, too. You just continue to grow as a phenomenal paper artist! Hugs

  4. Wow Nanne! BOth of the layouts are just fabulous interpretations of the sketch! I just love spending time here drinking in the details! xxD

  5. Wow Nanne! Two more great layouts. I adore the one of your daughter. The little bunny at the top is so cute as are the other Easter items on the bottom. The layout of your mother and grandmother is beautiful The colors are so soft and beautiful. Where do you find the time to get all of this done? You make me hang my head in shame, as I only got one layout done and that was from last weekend!
