Love Birds-SOUS reveal May 27th

I have lots of good reasons for being thankful its Friday today,  first being its reaveal day over at SOUS and secondly, I have the weekend off of work..Hallelujah!!..and can I get an "Amen!"..LOL
This week we have yet another amazing sketch made for us by our very own Vanessa Waller aka Ness 
I absolutely adore her sketches and I kind of TRIED to keep it simple..LOL (even I laughed at that one!) So anyway, here is my take on our sketch:

Not sure I'm 100% happy with the cream cardstock as the scalloped circle, but its there to stay..LOL
these colors were a challenge to work with for some reason..

and here is our sketch:

The photos are of my daughter Amber and her boyfriend Jooa.. She told me she had new photos on her Facebook page, so I went and snatched some up... I think this photo is so sweet!!
and for a few close ups:

and for supplies used:

Cricut cartridges:
Cindy Loo: scalloped circle, flourish and doily
Songbirds: bird cage, marquee and title "Birds!"
Sweethearts: Title "Love!" 

Flowers by: Prima
Tiny flowers: punch
White Liquid pearl
Papers by: Deja Views
cardstock: Black, brown and cream
Tim Holtz distress ink: Peeled Paint
black twine

kind of a short list wasnt' it..LOL
Well ladies... I'm off to enjoy my weekend by scrapping my little heart out and I hope you do as well.. and if you do and I know you will, do stop by SOUS and check out what our amazing team has created using this same sketch.. Once again, these ladies have outdone them selves.. its seems like I say that every time its reveal day, but  these layouts of theirs just get better and better everytime.. 
and so with that said, I hope you have wonderfully creative weekend..
lots of hugs
