Getting Sketchy!

I love working with sketches!  There are so many ways to get inspired by a sketch.
Here's another great one by Cheri O'Neill from Lets Scrap that she drew for us to use over at Memorable Seasons.

Here's my finished layout:

I ended up changing things around a little bit to work with all my photos I wanted to use, so my photos ended up in places where there were accents on the sketch. I did use the stitching as inspiration for the stitched edges on my layout. 
And instead of putting the buttons/circles along those stitch marks, I put mine scattered among the photos. You can also see the top flap of the envelope pocket that I cut off and used above my main photo.
 My title also was inspired by the sketch...started with the main title in larger letters, then my sub titles in smaller letters underneath.
 My journaling is hidden inside the envelope pocket:

Beautiful layout, I love the large vintage looking buttons and great pictures. Not hard to tell that was one of Cheri's sketches, I think she makes the best sketches I've come across.
