Make A Wish-SOUS

I'm so delighted its Friday again.. I couldn't wait to post this cute little layout I put together for our weekly sketch over at SOUS (stuck on U sketches).
I adore those cute little paper pieced teddy bears and have been trying to come up with own design for one..I think SHE turned pretty darn cute..LOL
I also found a great tutorial on hand made roses and if you wish to check her blog out, please do!! she also has a great tute on edge distressing.. Just click HERE

So here is the sketch we were to follow this week.. its a beautiful sketch by Beggahuna..

I put the title up on the left hand corner instead of the bottom.. I felt like the layout was missing something having that empty corner..LOL
