Scrap Our Stash Sketch +Flowers - Our "Fun Trip"

It is time for April's sketch at Scrap Our Stash!  This month's "word" is FLOWER, so in addition to the sketch, you must include an item that starts with the first letter of that word, in your layout submission.

Here is the sketch - I think it is a perfect one for those Instagram photos!
I used the following items from my stash, to fulfill the "FLOWER" Challenge:

F - Fibers, Flash Cards paper, Fired Brick Stain
L - Lined paper, Live.Love.Laugh paper, leaves
O - Ochre (color,) Oasis Stickers ( title )
W - Washi Tape, Wooden Hearts, We R Memory Keepers - Gold Sequins, White Wine paper, Wine Cork paper, Wine and Friends paper, Wine bottle, Wine glass, Wine canvas embellishment
E- Eyelet, Epiphany Crafts Punch and Enamel shape
R - Ranger Distress Stains, Ranger Distressed Inks, Reminisce -The Winery paper collection

Here is my inspiration layout for you!
This was a FUN TRIP to Myrtle Beach, SC with my hubby, son and my parents, the week between Christmas and New Years, at the end of 2015.

A new winery opened up and we enjoyed a tasting event.

It was the first time my youngest son was old enough to join the adults having a glass of wine!

Love this grouping of embellishments!

My Dad and my Mom, and my hubby and I.  I popped the 4 photo mat and made a pocket for a journaling tag behind the photos. Love the added textures of the fibers and the little "chit chat" word stickers worked perfectly. I love how they pop with the double matt behind them.

Here is the front of the tag.  I fussy cut the grapes and word wine, and outlined them in black to make them pop.

A little washi tape to bling up the back of the tag with the journaling. - Oops - I just realized, I wrote the wrong year - This was in 2015!!  I will have to go change that now! LOL!

I cut all of the leaves out with my circuit, then inked them with Ranger Distress Ink.  I curled them with my finger and popped them with 3D dots.  Love the enamel hexagon embellishment I made with my Epiphany Crafts punch. 

My handsome son!

I really Love how the leaves came out and this little canvas embellishment too!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!   I hope the sketch and my layout inspire you to play along!  Head on over to the Scrap Our Stash Blog for more inspiration from my fellow Design Team members and to check out the PRIZE and Challenge Details too!
