OUAS July Challenge Reveal (Meg's Garden/Helmar)

Today is my first reveal post for the Once Upon a Sketch (OUAS) challenge site! I used beautiful papers from Meg's Garden "Forget me not 2" collection as well as some gorgeous lace, flowers and velvet leaves from her store. I adore the soothing colors in this beautiful paper collection.


This is one of my favorite wedding day pictures, taken right after the ceremony. The OUAS theme this month is FRIEND. The journaling on the back reads "On December 1st, 2011, we vowed to be best friends for life and we still are". Hubby and I really are best friends... we were even room-mates in school 16 years ago (so we truly don't know how to live apart!).


Here is a close-up of the pretty embellishments. The Dusty Attic Chipboard is from my shop. I used Helmar Premium glue for all the paper layers and the 450 Quick dry glue to hold all the embellishments (really great for heavy embellies like the resin shutters).

And here is the OUAS sketch this month. Be sure to check out the blog for fantastic inspiration from the new design team as well as all the challenge details... GORGEOUS prizes to be won too - there are so many great sponsors!
