Scrap Our Stash April Sketch +3 "LOVE THIS!"

Hello my scrappy friends!!  HAPPY MID APRIL to you!  If it is the middle of the month - that must mean it is time for a SKETCH + 3 Challenge from the SCRAP OUR STASH BLOG!  
We've got SWEET one for you this month - LOTS of possibilities!!  
Take a look and let your imagination run with it!!
Not only is the Challenge to use the Sketch as your inspiration, you also need to include ONE item from each of the 3 Lists at the bottom!  This really makes it interesting - and if you are like me - you will be going through your stash, and finding "stuff" you forgot you had!!!!

For the +3 Challenge- I decided to use the following items from the Lists:
1)  Jillibean Soup  "Yellow Tomatoes" (the yellow lined base paper)
2) KaiserCraft "Vagabond/Nomad ( the pink flowered paper )
3) Lined Paper ( the Jillibean Soup paper, along with lined embellishments from Theresa Collin's Far and Away Collection)
Here is my Design Team Layout Submission:  "LOVE THIS!"
The photos in the layout are SELFIES that I took of my Mom and I at show of The Midtown Men at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, last May.  Her Mother's Day gift last year was "Dinner and a Show."  We had dinner at the restaurant at the theater before the show, and then enjoyed listening to The Midtown Men. Gifts like this, when we get to enjoy time together are my favorite! I love spending time with my Mom, we always have FUN times together.

Here are some close ups for you:
I decided to print the photos using a black and white filter on my computer.  I tore the edges and then inked them with Ranger Distress Stain - Peacock Feathers. LOVE this look!

The tag, from Heidi Swapp was once ivory.  I sprayed it with Patina Glimmer Mist and Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise Ink Spray. I then added a coral cardstock mat to the back to make the "LOVE THIS" title POP!  I secured it to the layout with a black and white brad from my stash, that I tied some cool/funky fibers too!  I love how it came out!
Here is a close up of the fibers!

This flower was made from the Die Cut Flowers pack part of the Theresa Collins Far and Away Collection.  I inked each layer of petals and curled the edges to give it some dimension.  I used a smaller black and white brad from my stash, that matches the larger one on the tag.

Here is a close up of the flower- there are 6 layers!
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope my layout and this Sketch +3 Challenge from Scrap Our Stash INSPIRES you to get out there and CREATE something!! Looking forward to seeing your submissions over at the
