once upon a...sketch/csi#2

this is the first challenge i have done from CSI so i was pretty proud of myself. 
i love challegnes that i know exactly what i want to do and this one just fell into place for me.
strangely enough i have used a photo of my ex-boyfriend from when i was 16. i was so madly in love with him (at the time) that he could do no wrong although that year of my life was definately the worst. however, im not bitter about it. i wouldn't be where i am today if i didnt experience that. several months after breaking up with him i got back together with my previous boyfriend from yr 10 and we have now celebrated 11 wonderful years together and have 4 absolutely adorable children. 
this page is a feel good page for me...if only he could see me now and see how much happier i am without him!! LOL

so i have used the sketch , the pallete (the blue flowers and the title "looking back" is in red)
evidence- the button (it is a clear one underneath the butterfly) and the circles that are painted on with bubble wrap packaging. 
testimony-handwriting and of course the gorgeous lyrics from beyonce "best thing i never had"
thanks for looking and any comments you may leave...
im terribly sorry for putting this post up twice but i made a mistake with the first one and cant delete it.
