Hello Friends!! So nice to have you visiting! I want to thank everyone for your kindness regarding my mom & her passing...it means so much to me! It felt great to scrap again... I almost forgot how, but it soon came flooding back!!
The inspiration for this layout was an awesome photo of my sister in 1968 with her little one! I really wanted to capture the innocence that was reflected in her face & my sweet nephews smile! Both so young & naive! I am in the process of using up my stash of supplies & have cancelled kit clubs until I manage to make a huge dent in my stash! ( So hard to to cancel.. but really needed to clear out some stuff! ) This was done using the remainder of the March 2009 LE kit from My Creative Scrapbook that featured the Bella Bella papers from My Minds Eye. They are some of my all time fav papers!!!
I doubled matted the photo & added a touch of ribbon & punched paper for some interest. The chip trees were purchased last year at the St. Louis CKC convention- I am uncertain who made them. I inked them with Ranger black alcohol ink & added little flowers punched with a EK Success punch with a pearl center. All flowers are inked with Ranger Distress ink... Broken China, Worn Lipstick & Frayed Burlap.
The title work is Basic Grey Wilma raw chip also painted with the Ranger alcohol ink. I added a border of flowers & leafs to sorta frame the layout.
I laced the ribbon around the inner square portion of layout. Then adhered pearls on the spots where the lacing was done. I used an ruler called a CTHRU Ruler made by Dejaviews to mark the spots for lacing!
A little Martha Stewart bird in flight filled that empty spot!!
Finally, one little layered flower in the photo corner for luck!! I wanted to reflect innocence plus the change of seasons from late winter to very early spring. I hope I achieved that!!
Thanks again friends! I have missed everyone. Big Hugs!!
