Sketch reveal-S.O.U.S

Helloooooo fellow scrappers.. I'm so excited to share today's project with you.. It took me a whole two days to get the design done and to make it all come to life.. I was so excited with my shadow box that I had created for Wednesdays reveal for Whimsical Wednesdays that I wanted to create another.. Only this time I bought the 12x12 (11 3/4x 11 3/4) shadow box and sized it down to a 8x8.. Go me!!..LOL  I also wanted to create something special for my son Aaron's girlfriend Mari.. They have been together for over a year now and she has become a big part of our family..
So, this is what I ended up with:

Once again using one of my favorite photos.. I did some FB stalking and found this photo in photo files..LOL

Here is the sketch I designed and used for this "layout":

How about some close ups:

The top of the shadow box.. sorry its a bit blurry..

Added some film strip that I cut out of black cardstock, bent it a bit to pop it off the frame..

Loved the title phrase.. found that in the SIL store and thought it was a perfect element for this layout..
I also added some butterflies, flowers and a flourish trim around the page..

Here you can see how everything is popped off of the page using foam tape.

close ups of the flower cluster and of my son Aaron.. He's such a handsome young man and I'm not just saying that being his mom..LOL

side view of the rose and the cluster, I added black leaves and grey stems.. Both files are from the SIL store..
here's a close up of my son's girlfriend Mari and of the embellishments I added to the bottom right corner.. The sentiment strip is a digital element from Echo Park that I cut using my cameo..
