2sketches4you

This weeks fab sketch over at 2sketches4you is designed by the lovely Laura....
After being tagged the other day it got me looking through all my pics again & I thought that I would use the sketch to make this card for my MIL... Here she stands proud & happy with her two boys... on the left is my OH Rob (eldest) and on her right is Donny (the baby of the family).
This picture was taken in Colorado Springs on Donny's wedding day (April 8th 2006) and I thought that as we are so far apart, my MIL would like this momento of the day... MIL is in Tustin, California and we of course are in the UK... Donny still remains in Colorado Springs where he has lived for many many years now...
Papers are Antique Cream by Papermania
Tags, ribbons & gem are from my stash...
Happy crafting
