3 Sisters - The Paper Variety Sketch Challenge

A happy Sunday to everyone!!  It's a little bit chilly here.  I was hoping to get some yard work done today, but opted to work on a layout instead. 

The Paper Variety has a great sketch challenge going on right now with a wonderful sketch designed for them by Jana Eubank:

This layout came together quite quickly for me.  Believe it or not I completed it in less then one hour!
I combined a mixture of papers from Echo Park's For The Record and Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 chipboard elements.

The three women in the picture are my Nana, and her two sisters, my Aunt Ruth and Aunt Mil.
My Nana is in the middle. The picture was taken in 1960.
Here are a few closeups:




Hope you enjoy what's left of the weekend!
