Everlasting Friendship- SOUS

Two weeks surely goes by fast when your having fun..LOL
SOUS is having its bi-weekly reveal again today and here is my take on this weeks sketch.
I wasn't sure at first where I was going with it, but it turned out pretty sweet at the end..
The photo is of my aunt (dad's sister) and my grandmother (mom's mom).  It was taken the summer I moved here with my family, back in 1996.. We were enjoying a nice warm summers day outside having a cup of coffee..
My aunt and my grandmother have always been good friends..

Here is the sketch that we have for you that  Leah chose for this week and its by a very talented lady Liz Qualman:
Here are some close ups of the layout

Made some roses again by hand.. They are getting easier and easier to make..LOL
I also added glossy accent to the butterflies, bees and dragonfly.

and for supplies used:
