The Big Sketch#2

As You all my know My Creative Scrapbook is having a 3 month Sketch Contest to win great Prizes... I think its a fun way to do a Contest and Of Course I am participating...More Information Click on the Link.
Here is the Sketch for Round 2
The Sketch was made by Julie Bonner....
For my take on the Sketch I used Old pictures of my Grandparents. Not sure if it is cause of the old pictures are cause my pictures are not flat as there is some bumpy under it but it gave it a glare when taking a Photo of my layout. Sorry about that.
I used Graphic 45 papers, Prima Flowers, and Muslin as a mat behind my pictures then I added Glimmer mist too the muslin to get that aged look I wanted... Used Buttons and SVG File from MyScrapchick which is the leaves....Did lots of distressing as well..
Here is a close up Of the flower Cluster that's above the picture..
