Absolutely Fabulous 37

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week so far! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of my dear sister Tina that was taken more than 50 years ago along with beautiful papers from the newly released Pion Design Vintage Wedding collection.
The Vintage Wedding collection is quite versatile and may be easily used for any occasion type of project. 
Tina's not only my sister but she's my best girlfriend :) There's nothing the two of us can't conquer together! 
To create the background, I collaged a variety of Vintage Wedding papers then added colour using various inks including the pretty ColourArte Radiant Rain Sea Foam:




Once the background was complete, I embellished with die cut foliage, flowers from my stash, a stamped clock face and a duo of die cut hearts that were colorized using the pretty ColourArte Radiant Rain Sea Foam:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Sketchabilities sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)

I love the vintage feel of this beautiful layout. The colours are perfect together and how lucky you are to have a sister. I gained on very special one by marriage but she lives soooooooo far away and I miss her horribly. <3 this one

Another great layout - I love how you've created structure with the paper strips in the background and then built up the embellishing around that precious photograph. What a lovely tribute to your close relationship with your sister.
