Scrapbooking Pic of the Week

I've finally managed to get back here and show you my Pic of the Week (from last week) in a scrapbook layout. I went with a sketch challenge from Totally Addicted to Sketch. If you haven't seen this site, pop over and have a look - you won't be disappointed - there sketches are amazing. So here is the sketch they have up at the moment:
And here's my scrapbook layout:
This is a 12x12 layout and I've used just an ordinary size photo - 4x6. So there is alot of blank space, but it has still balanced out great.
I've started off with a background in More Mustard cardstock. With my Stampin' wheel - Friendly Words - I've inked up in the Versamark and then rolled around edge edge, rolling over each other a number of times. Then I've sponged all the edges.
I've added some layers of cardstock and DP as per the sketch, in Choc Chip and Not quite Navy.
I've gone with Organic Outlines to make the leaf images. I've stamped one onto the Mustard cardstock and two have been stamped onto other cardstocks, then cut out and mounted onto the layout with dimensions. These edges have been sponged with ink and I've added some small peices of bling! The heart image is a piece of felt with a button attached using twine.
Then I've finished off the layout with the title and some small words.
Here's a closer look of some detail.
Hope you've been enjoying all my scrapbook creations so far - it's been fun scrapping recent photo's and feels like I'm getting more up-to-date.

Nice work Chantelle. I'm not a huge fan of just one 4x6 photo on a 12x12, but you have given it a nice balance here.
