Friends...OUAS 30

Hi there! It's time for a new sketch to play with at Once Upon A SketchThis month, we ask you to include a number, ANY number, on your layout. It has to be VISIBLE and it can be in your title or part of your journalling. It can be a date, an age, a house number, an anniversary, the number of children you have, the number of pets .... anything you like. But please make sure that there is some explanation through your journalling, somewhere on your page or blog about what this number means to you.
I made a layout featuring a photo of Emily, Connor and Meredith prior to the Homecoming dance. After creating the background with various sprays, molding paste and gesso, I was ready to embellish the page with various chipboard pieces from Imaginarium Designs that I altered as well. The beautiful frame around the photo is an Imaginarium Designs Anna Frame. The tag was made using a Die-namics Traditional Tag STAX die which features my journaling along with ID chipboard altered numbers.
Shown below are a few manufactured blossoms along with fancy ID flourishes
and all three butterflies on the page are from ID as well. I cut a doily in two that was made using a Die-namics Dizzy Doily Duo die and adhered those pretty little chipboard butterflies. 
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you liked my layout. Please be sure to visit the Once Upon A Sketch site to see what the participating DT members have created.
Be Sweet ;)
