To complete yours I used a border punch across the top of the photo, I punched the numbers "2010", I have a butterfly in the lower left-hand corner of the photo, as well as a fussy cut transparency of flowers on a vine in the same cluster.

  8. ANother awesome challenge, Rochelle! I combined your challenge with Kery's. While it started out using Brenda's sketch, it continued to stray and ended up in a totally different place so I'm working on another for her :-)
