Sketchy Thursdays 8/26 Sketch Challenge

I know you won't believe it but I am going out of town AGAIN. My husband got a promotion and we will be moving. We are both going to fly to Minnesota and check out the Minneapolis area and try to get a feel for where we might want to live. We leave tomorrow afternoon and come back on Sunday.
Nothing happens quickly so we might not be moving until next year so expect to hear about it for a while.
Here is my take on the Sketchy Thursdays 8/26 sketch challenge. I ended up changing to only one picture that was horizontal instead of vertical but I think it works out fine.
I used My Minds Eye pp's - Deena's Penny Lane and Spectrums Cool. I added some crocheted flowers that my mother made for me and I made a paper flower out of scallop punched pp that I cut along every two scallops and then scrunched up. I layered the paper scallops and then put the crocheted flower on top. Add a few buttons from my stash and voila.
There is some purple bling...also from my stash and I cut out the title work with my Cuttin Up Cricut Cartridge. I also added a few paper clips and charms.
I combined this challenge with a challenge at Sketches4you that Dannette has going right now. It is to use Purple, Pink and Lime Green, 3 flowers, 3 buttons, and 2 paper clips.
Thanks for visiting my blog, I really love to share my creations and to hear from you.
