A Fine Wine- SOUS DT project reveal

You ladies have NOOOOOOO idea how happy I am its finally Friday.. For many reasons obviously, but being able to enjoy a work free weekend is definitely up there on the list..LOL
But coming close second is our reveal over at SOUS this Friday..  We have such a fun sketch to work with and yes, it made me pick my brain more than a few times, but finally got into the groove of things and got a layout finished and its of my sweet loving mom.. 
These photos I took last summer while we were cooking out in our little back patio and I was making her laugh while taking photos of her... she finally made me stop!!..LOL

Here is my take on this weeks sketch:
and here is the sketch:

I have to admit I struggled a bit with finding the right papers and the right photos..LOL  But, I had so much fun when I finally got into the creative mood..  I added some ribbon and pearls instead of papers along the left hand side and then thought to finish the layout with some more flowers, since I'm sure you all know by now, I'm in love with flowers..LOL

Here are a few close ups of the layout:

and for supplies used:

Papers by: Papermania: Rose Garden
