Our moment

If you're here for the About A Girl one color challenge reveal please scroll down.
Good morning everyone! It's reveal time at Use Your Words and this time you're being challenged to use the word "Moment" in your title or journaling. This is my page based from the sketch at StuckOnUSketches for their sketch challenge.
The photo is of my husband and I walking in our yard, just taking a moment to enjoy the sunshine (and letting him brag about his lawn). For this page I used a mix of papers; Webster Pages Nature's storybook, Fancy Pants Wishful Thinking, and KaiserCraft Timeless. I hand stitched my circles on the background instead of the doily from the sketch. Using a Martha Stewart border punch I punched a little on the top, then trailing across the bottom, tucking some cheesecloth underneath. The thin ribbon I pleated then glued to my lace strip to match my bow.
And here's the sketch from StuckOnUSketches 
I hope you get a "Moment" to join us at Use Your Words, we would love to see your projects.
Thanks so much for letting me share with you. Your time and comments are always appreciated.
