Party People- SOUS sketch reveal Nov 11

Another Friday and yet another Holiday weekend for me (Its Father's day here Sunday).. Living in Finland has its perks, but sun light during autumn and winter isn't one of them..LOL   Sun rises around 9am and starts to set around 4pm.. For four days, I tried to get a half way descent photo of this layout I created and this is the best I could do and sorry ladies, no close ups this time :(  they just weren't clear enough..
These photos were taken at my mom's wedding last Spring.. the shorter one is my daughter Amber and the taller one is one of her best friends..
so, so. so...LOL  This sketch is the very first one I have ever created and I held onto it not sure if I like it or not, but then decided "why not!".. Lets see what the girls over at SOUS can create with it and I have to say that I'm so pleasantly surprised that they were able to create some amazing stuff with it..  
Here is the layout I created:

sorry it is a little fuzzy.. but I did my best to try to grab a good photo...
and here is the layout I created for SOUS:

I ended up flipping the sketch since my photos weren't upright and I created all of my own flowers.. Dont' remember the last time I hand made my flowers.. It was so much fun and will be creating more in the not so far future.  LOL

and for the supplies used:

 Cricut cartridges:
George and Basic Shapes:
Large circle
Song Bird:
Title font
Cindy Loo:

Papers from Walmart (of all places :) )
