A few weeks ago, my aunt and uncle celebrated their 50th anniversary. I made this cute little card for them. I snapped the photo real quick before sending it, so sorry it is focused more on the flower than the card! I have quite a few more aunts and uncles that are getting close to their 50th wedding anniversaries. It really is quite amazing!

I love the tragic look of my little guy's face. I feel bad, but his sad face usually makes me laugh. Oh the things that make a toddler burst into tears! When I was looking for water embellishments in my stash, I found this vellum mushroom. I thought the color worked really well with my page, and my backyard is constantly growing these huge mushrooms. My backyard is a breading ground for these things! So, I decided the mushrooms would work. I also discovered that I really don't have many embellishment that are water related. Plus, all the summer ones are so happy and cheerful. I guess there is a low demand for grumpy summer stickers! Anyways, there is a fairly basic sketch from the memory nest this time around.
As you can tell, I rotated the sketch to work for my landscape photo. I kept the layering to the matting of my one photo, because I really liked how my background paper looked without covering much up.

It's time to share my layout for the Memory Nest again! I love this photo of my daughter. I really
wanted the photo to stand out, so I kept my layout in mostly black and white with just a bit of color.
Now, I tried to get the round feel from the sketch by stitching a couple of circles in the background. My first little one turned out great, but you can't tell because the photo covers most of it up. Then the bigger circle is a bit more...wobbly. I wish it wasn't so wonky, but there isn't a whole lot I could do about it. Also, I used some rubons on this layout and they really didn't stick to my page much at all. Luckily, I like the distressed look that they made. It kind of has a paint or even gelato smudge look to it.
