thursday...Capture the Good Times Layout

Hi everyone! I've been feeling extra creative these past few days and decided to play along with the TCR Palette #131 since it has been ages that I've done that! I also finally decided to try out the Once Upon a Sketch October Challenge. I've been stalking their blog for a few months now but was always very intimidated to try any of their challenges. I love the fact that they offer a sketch and encourage you to journal on your layout!

Well, here's my layout:

I used an older Prima paper stack that I got from Michaels a few years back. The chipboards are by Making Memories, which I have also had in my stash for a while. The doilies are actually a die cut by Cheery Lynn and the leaves (stamps and dies) are by Heartfelt Creations. The picture is of my hubby and I last year in GA. It was the first time I experienced Fall. I wanted to create an elegant and very layered layout and I think I achieved it! I have hidden journaling under the picture (the black tab on the left side of the picture pulls out).

Here's OUAS's October sketch:

and they also had a second part to the challenge-to use the quote below as inspiration on your layout. I used part of it as my title.

Here's TCR palette #131:

Below, you can see a few close ups of my layout:
