You Are My Happy Place - OUAS November Challenge

This month over at Once Upon A Sketch they had a gorgeous sketch with the theme of "My Happy Place". Having just gotten married on the 1 November I was inspired to use a photo of my husband and I taken by one of my friends ..... I should warn you in advance .... be prepared for lots of pages featuring wedding photos over the next few months!!! Sorry!

Anyhoo ... this is the sketch that provided the inspiration ...
And here's my take on it....
As a base I've used kaisercraft "Base coat - Paper Bricks" and then coordinated it with an older Bo Bunny paper from my stash. Add in some yummy Dusty Attic chipboard and some flowers for extra effect...
 I've combine my title into part of the journalling ...
 While the rest of the journalling is hidden on a tag under the flowers that can be pulled out like this...
Well, that's all for now, thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,

Kaye :-)
