Capture The Good Times

I'm really enjoying adding some mixed media to my layouts.  Still taking baby steps though.  Love the texture it adds to the layout.  I create this layout using the October sketch at Once Upon A Sketch and Bellaidea's Butterfly Challenge at Inkido.  Lately I've been creating layouts for my friend Julina.  I think her first album is just about full and I know that there will be more to follow.  I love looking through her pictures on Facebook and  found one of her youngest, Zoey and fell in love with it.

Here is the sketch:
 and their theme is the following quote which you can interpret any way you like
I drew from the words capture the good times.

Some masking using modeling past and a touch of  pink ink:

The required journaling.  
Mine is hidden as it is a personal message from Julina to her daughter.  
You can see a little bit of it here:

And a beautiful cluster of flowers that I had in my stash by Recollections and a little pebble by Prima.  Loved how well they coordinated with the Bo Bunny Country Garden papers!

Thanks for stopping by!
