Shine-Sketch reveal SOUS

Well Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaappy Friday fellow crafters..
 Its sketch reveal time again for us ladies over at SOUS and this weeks sketch is designed by your's truly..LOL  the sketch was inspired by a layout I seen in a magazine a few months back and I absolutely loved it..  
 I'm not gonna yap your ears off this week and so, lets get to the sketch shall we:

and here is my take on this sketch:

I had to photograph this inside since were all rain this summer, it might be a little fuzzy.. 
not much sunshine at all..blah!!

how about some close ups:

My hand journaling.. I hate my handwriting when I don't have lines for help..LOL

My sweet Amber and my youngest son Adam.. 

I broke open my Flower Shoppe cartridge to make these flowers and leaves.. been a while since I hand made flowers and it was so much fun..

I found a chipboard sticker in my stash and wanted to use it since I liked the color of it.. then created the rest of the title around it.. 

and this is a transfer sentiment I found in my stash as well.. thought it was cut.. I just cut it up into three pieces so I could add it to the strips.. cute!!

and finally my little yellow flowers.. I added a big gob of white liquid pearl to the centers of the yellow flowers.. I also did some fussy cutting, some of the flowers from the papers I used..

and for supplies used:

Cricut Imagine for the die cuts
