SOUS - Too Late!!

This is my take on the second sketch over at www.stuckonusketches.blogspot.com


However - I am too late to submit.....


Here come the excuses.....



The beginning of the week was work, my shifts are all over the place, including weekends, as a nurse we never work the same shifts two weeks in a row (why has nursing always been this way) - and by the middle of the week I was beginning to suffer from the flu......


I just felt so awful, stuffed head, aching muscles, just couldn't get it together at all - so spent a couple of days in bed feeling really sorry for myself, as one does, and then voila, finished the layout, and Mr Linky was closed.....



So, I thought, seeing as how I actually managed to finish it, I would post it here anyway.

The papers are MME Front Porch collection.

The title was cut on Cricut using Cursive 101 at 1 1/2"
The two flourishes are from Home Decor at 2 1/2" and 3".

The scalloped frame around the photo was from an old Sizzix die which I put through my Big Shot.

I am now going to get started on sketch # 3 before anything happens.....

Jane,
What a beautiful layout - it was perfect for the sketch, truly!

I'm sorry you have to work wonky shifts - you must be a LOT younger than I am - I couldn't do it. I'm convinced - anything out of my routine and I'm just "stick-a-fork-in-me-DONE"!
