So Very Loved

Hello everyone. Today I am sharing a layout with you that follows the current Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch which is below.

I really liked the elements of this sketch. The banners offer potential to create boy pages. In my interpretation of the sketch, I replaced one of the rectangular mats for a doily.

I used papers from the Curiosity Collection and my background paper is from Base Coat 3. There are so many journaling pieces as well as papers that you can fussy cut.

I used Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 die here to create a frame for my photo. I also used the labels 28 die to mat and shape my photo.
I created my own cherry blossoms using some Kaisercraft flowers. I will share a tutorial at a later date.

I hope that you'll stop by the Kaisercraft blog to join in and to also see what Joanne and Geraldine created.
