The Four Graces...a layout

One of my daughters is named Grace.  We went to a park that had a statue named "The Three Graces".  She ran over in front of it and put up her 4 fingers and pointed to herself with the other hand and said "Hey Momma, take a it's 'The Four Graces'."  I have been holding onto these photos for almost a year to make a layout and finally got around to it! 
This LO starts with a base of Always Artichoke Cardstock.  I then layered some scraps of theNEW Sneak Peek DSP Paisley Petals and the DSP Greenhouse Gala.  Next is a layer of Baja Breeze and Old Olive Cardstocks.  I then added the photos and put a strip of retired Old Olive printed ribbon.  Nex I added the Title in the New Sneak Peek stamp set Four Frames Stamp in Old Olive and punched with the decorative label punch in Baja Breeze CS.  The journaling is on Baja Breeze CS in Old Olive Ink.  I used some of the flowers from the Paisley Petals and cut them with my paper snips then popped them up using Dimensionals.  The edges of the base are rolled with the Paisley wheel in Versamark ink:)

I am entering this layout into a few challenges.  Creative Scrappers Sketch #152 (I based my LO on this sketch), Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combos Combo #96 (to use Baja Breeze, Always Artichoke and Old Olive), Just a Spark Weekly Challenge (to make a LO using 2 photos)
 and Pals Paper Arts  - PPA89(flower inspiration)

Now I know some of you **Ashlee**  like the closeups of individual areas of the LO's.  Soooo....
