Love A Good Book

Hi!!  I love to end my evening sitting in my favorite blue chair with my blanket and a good book (or my Kindle).  I treasure this time as the house is quiet.  I am a night owl and can not fall asleep easily before 11:30.

One of my daycare grandmas crocheted me a prayer blanket for Christmas.  Not only was the blanket special, but the note she wrote me brought tears to my eyes.  She is grateful that I take care of her twin grandchildren.  I was very touched and snapped a selfie on my cell phone to send her.

It was a little while later when I deiced to create a page with it!

When I saw the photo challenge at Let's Scrap, all I could see was lobster and I am NOT a seafood fan!! 

Once I got past the platter of lobster, I noticed the blue table cloth and the chair.

In addition to the photo:  You are free to use which ever LS sketch and what ever in this picture that inspires you. From the following list you are free to choose 3 items:
Bling, lace, ribbon/twine, flowers, cut outs, sewing, swirls,, something stamped, brads, journaling, five patterned papers, circles, stars or buttons.

 Here is the sketch I used:

I used the left side of this sketch.

My additional elements are:  Flowers, twine, cut outs and journaling.

The chair is cut out from my Cameo.  I used twine as my book mark.  I pop-dotted the chair to my layout.

I used some crocheted flowers to coordinate with the blanket.

I tucked the letter Margaret wrote me behind my paper.  I adhered the paper only on the sides and bottom.

I chose a book print paper for my background and cut my title from my Cameo.

This layout is special to me and I was excited to show it to Margaret!  This is very different than the first image I had of the photo for this challenge!!!

I hope you consider to step outside your norm and create a layout for this challenge, you can enter it HERE!!!
