The Proposal layout...Challenge Yourself Pagemap

I had quite a productive weekend. I played along with a virtual crop and managed to fit in a couple of challenges as well.  All in all I completed about a dozen pages and a dozen cards. One of the challenges I used was Challenge yourself's sketch.  I hardly participate over there since I rarely scrap myself...but I am currently working on my wedding album and for once I did NOT take all the pictures!  These pics are actually the proposal and my sister was my photographer for both events.

Some of my details include this layered embellishment I created.  I recently purchased a pack of color themed die cuts at Tuesday Morning, the pack I picked was gold.  I layered two of the pieces here.

Here I layered a fancy Spellbinders die cut with a chipboard die cut and some matching Creative Memories stickers.  Love was white and it was a little stark so I colored it with a silver shimmer pen.

I actually created this page first from a sketch during my virtual crop.  Then I searched the web for a sketch that would work with my photos for the companion page.

Here's the sketch I used for this one. I was playing along with the Creative Memories Virtual Crop.
