My Greatest Fear

Good morning all. I hope you have a fantastic weekend. We have NOTHING planned and I am so GRATEFUL! I feel like we have not stopped since the last week of MAY! So this weekend is relaxing, scrapping and maybe a little shopping! Any ways, here is my latest layout. I used a sketch from Sketches in Thyme, and the theme from all about me (greatest fear). I also learned to "age" my photos in photo shop so that was fun! Hubby and I disagree on this layout. I would like your thoughts. Do you think that the photos go with the "style" of the page? I know that the style is WAY different than I normally do but I had fun with it. What do you think? All the paper is from TIM HOLTZ SHABBY CHIC paper that I LOVE LOVE LOVE and just got for 50% off at Michael's! I may need another stack! LOL! All the flowers except the large shiny one are primas. The large pink three layered one with bling is a brooch that I found while yard saling with my Daddy in May. I loved it and with a little ink it goes perfect I think. The lace is also Prima that a good friend sent me. A zva bling swirl from another friend, a Joann's Essential ribbon slide, thickers, and MM mini letters lots of pearls and INK! LOTS OF INK! What do you think?

If you are interested in the journaling (its a bit personal) I think you can see it but I can't type it again without tears.

So there you go a new style for me, what do you think?
And for good measure while I was trying to get a picture of this layout this is what C was doing:
She wanted her picture taken! She kept saying CHEESE CHEESE! LOL! Such a silly girl! Doesn't she look like she is at least four or five or older in this picture? OH MY!
