Double Challenge entry "You & Me Forever"

Hi Scrappy friends - 
I saw this really cool sketch on Brenda's the Grand Divas Scrappy Place Blog and decided to give it a try! 

As and ADDED Challenge she linked up with Rochelle from over at the THIS or THAT Challenge Blog, so that you have a chance to win a bonus prize!   Here is that challenge:

These are photos of my wonderful hubby and me, taken at a Sunflower Maze, here in New Jersey this past August.  I love sunflowers and he was so sweet to spend the day traipsing around a field of flowers with me.  We were lucky to go on a gorgeous sunny day, with beautiful blue skies and a few white puffy clouds!  With our busy hectic lives, I love that we are able to carve out some time to spend time together, and try to do so whenever we can.

We held hands, laughed, got a little lost...and he didn't complain when I took a ton of selfies and pictures!  We even stopped at a 50's Drive-In Restaurant for lunch and a cute farm stand on the way home too!

It was a WONDERFUL day and I feel so blessed to have spent it together with my guy in a field of flowers!

Love the colors in this collection by My Mind's Eye. I also like how the bold blue color of the Bazzill "North Sea" cardstock that I matted the page and the triangles with, makes everything "pop!"

I had this wooden title that was originally black, and actually was a magnet. I painted it the 2 colors, and I'm really happy with how it came out.  I glued a bright green twine to a circle that I first drew in pencil, to follow the sketch design.

Here you can see the "ticket" element that I added to play along with the This or That October challenge.  

I added the date in this corner - with stickers that I have had forever - I chose white, to go along with the other word stickers that I used on the layout.

I love this little grouping of embellishments in the bottom left corner.  The clear "flair" embellie that I made with my fun new Epiphany Crafts circle punch using a piece of the pattern paper and clear resin sticker.  I fussy cut an inked some flowers and use brads that I've had in my stash forever!  I also painted a wooden & symbol with the same paint and technique I used in the title.

I've also entered this layout in the November Challenge over at the Studio Challenge Blog

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope I've inspired you to create!
