Mr & Mrs - Stuck?! sketch challenge

I started scrapbooking 6 years ago when I started making a wedding album for our 5 year anniversary that year. I had never before done a scrapbook like this, only collecting souvenirs from trips and pasting them down on some paper before. So I bought a couple paper packs and went to town and made a wedding album. Then my grandmother started sending me some of her picture albums and this picture was in it. A picture I had NEVER seen before nor knew existed. I love the candidness of it, a snapshot of us getting out of the truck at the reception. And it shows how things looked, and us just being casual, and I love that! I STILL have those paper packs that I started with 6 years ago, and when I found a color challenge over at A Cherry on Top, combined with this sketch from Stuck?!, I knew it would be a perfect picture to use!

Here's the sketch from Stuck?!



and here's the layout I created, using items from that original paper pack so it still coordinates with my wedding album (though the style definitely is different than the rest of the layouts!)





I had a bit of a mishap with the Heidi Swap misting inks, but in the end the result is acceptable, tho I do need to learn a bit more about using them! lol.

Thanks for stopping by and leave a comment!
