Love blooms Here-SOUS reveal

Another Friday and that means another reveal at SOUS.. 
We had a great sketch this week and I think it was so easy to use..  I did make this layout as I wanted to, replacing the buttons with flowers..of course! :O)
This is yet another photo of my DD Amber that she took herself a few summers ago and I really wanted to make a super girly layout this week..LOL

Here is the sketch that we worked with this week:
and here are some close ups of the layout:

I came up with the title idea shopping online one day and seeing these great chipboard titles that K&Co makes to go along their paper lines.. Well, I thought " I can do that!"..LOL
I welded some letters together using the DS and then cut them welded together once from chipboard and then cut the letters O, E , l and the e's.. cut them again with paper,then just layered em, inked me, chalked em and then added some stickles... looks super cute in person..
