Wednesday Once Upon a Sketch

This month's challenge at Once Upon a Sketch is FRIENDS. 
I am best friends with my older sister - we talk on the phone every day and see each other very, very often. This means so much to me and I truly hope that DD and DS will become best friends as well. I had so much to say to DD that I put a mini book on top of the layout to get all the journaling on it. 

The title of the layout Liebe Sarah (dear Sarah) is just like the beginning of a letter. 

Here is the sketch 


This is the title page of the mini album. The butterfly is mounted with 3D pads for more dimension. I used the Country Garden Collection from Bo Bunny. I love the soft but happy colors and patterns. Just perfect for my two little sweethearts.



Now a few close ups:

On each side, I made a few tags to pull out with photos of DD and DS. 



 I folded over the corner, added a "lock" brad on it and tucked a fluffy string in loops underneath.


Here, I ripped the edge a bit, tucked a doily underneath and decorated it with a layered flower. The paper itself had some stitching printed on it, so I added some real stitching on the edges as well. 

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best, 
Elisabeth
