leather and lace at lasting memories

This weeks challenge is leather and lace.
  I took it quit literally and used black patten leather and lace on my layout, but you could do a layout with a mix of feminine and masculine elements.
 How you interpret the challenge is up to you. 
 Here's what I did  with this sketch from Pamela's world of scrap's

I started by rotating the sketch to suit my photos
Then I add the  leather elements from a broken head band.
love being able to repurpose old items

All the papers are CTMH that have been in my stash for over 8 years old
the brads are probably that old too.  Trying to get back on track with using up my stash.

I just realized that my bottom picture on the layout is also a perfect example of the leather and lace feel because you have me in the black and Shannon in the gray sandwiching Kristy and April in the lighter feminine colors.  I guess that's another way to look at the challenge too

Hope you'll join us at lasting memories
I'm also entering this over at Use it Tuesday for anything goes

  3. Funny realization. I really like that white lace you used, and how you flipped the sketch to make it work for your photos. Thanks for sharing your layout with us at Use It Tuesday.
