Celebrate- SOUS reveal

Happy Friday reveal day ladies..LOL  I always say how fast these weeks go, but summer weeks just zoom by with a blink of an eye and this is our last sketch reveal for the month of June.. Next one will be in July.. I know I shouldn't want the summer to fly by, but my summer vacay dont' start till the end of August and we are going to the States for 2.5weeks, I just want to hit up some good craft stores..LOL  thats enough vacay for me.. I dont' need sunny beaches, just point me towards the closest Micheal's..LOL
So, lets get to the layout shall we before I talk your ears off..LOL
This week, Sandi C picked out the sketch again and I have to say "Wow!" I loved this sketch and I really am going to be using over and over again.. Its amazing...  So, here is my take on our sketch challenge:

 This photo was taken at my moms wedding.. My daughter Amber is on the right with my eldest son Aaron in the middle and Ambers best friend Sini on the right.. Sini is the young lady I had made the recipe mini album for which you can find the video for at the bottom of my blog posts..LOL

 and here is our sketch and its by Liz Qualman.  She is an amazingly talented lady !!

 And for a few close ups:

Loved creating this celebration banner.. I've seen so many beatiful big banners that lots of really talented ladies have created and I thought why not create a little one for a layout..

Once again I made my own flowers using the "Mother's Day Bougette!" cartridge..

and finally for the supplies used to create this layout:

I designed this layout using my Gypsy!! go me.. only have had it for over a year and this is the first layout I've created using it..LOL 

Cricut Cartridges:
Country life: Banner
Home Decor: small flowers on banner
George and basic Shapes: circles (big and small)
Songbird: Marquee
Stretch your imagination: Leaves
Gypsy Wonderings: Title "Celebrate!"
Sentimentals: Scalloped circle

Paper punch: mini flowers
pearl drops
Tim Holtz Distress ink: Spun Sugar and Broken china
Butterfly stickers
liquid pearl: pink and white

Well ladies.. that about does it for me for yet another Friday reveal.. I hope you enjoyed stopping by and I hope you got inspired to create a banner layout of your own...
