Sketch Along Tuesdays #20 layout

Wow, time is flying by this summer and its already sketch #20 over at Sketch Along Tuesdays- Frosted Designs. And today is also my husbands birthday...the big 60 for him- . So Happy Birthday to Ken. Well here is my take on this lovely sketch by Karin- she has had some wonderful sketches here for us to work and create with and this is no exception.
I love doing layouts of the outdoors- it is my favorite subject/photos to work with- so these photos of my son and his friend out enjoying the lovely weather and views of Lake Superior in Marquette Michigan a few years ago.
Materials used : Die Cut by SEI & brown gingham paper by Daisy D'S, K&Company die cut leaf border and 3 butterflies, Making Memories "Passport"  blue decorative trim ribbon, stamps by Studio G, wooden stamp, buttons, twine, embroidery floss, tulle, inks in brown & green, pop dots, my own handmade crocheted flowers and leaves, and I machine stitched  on the border of die cut in black thread.
 Above is a close up of a few of my crocheted flowers in tan or taupe and some lime green leaves also- something new that I tried crocheting and they turned out ok- I think I will be making some more of these in the future. I then wrapped some twine around the title of Friend for that natural look. Below you can see my machine stitching on the border and my sub title stamped on a piece of a paper bag and inked in green and brown.
Here is the sketch we worked with below. So be sure to enter your take of this sketch over at Sketch Along Tuesdays- at Frosted Designs for a chance to win a fabulous prize from our sponsor- Paper Loves Glue. They have a wonderful selection of hand-dyed crinkle ribbon in a variety of colors to give to a lucky person with an entry for this sketch. I love to see what you come up with.
