I Am Back At It!

Hi everyone!  I've been a bit MIA lately because of my darling and sharing children!  They shared their colds and flu with me!  As a friend of mine said, "Sharing is caring right?!"  I'm back up and at 'em today, though not at 100% yet.  I did manage to eek out a page today though!

Janet over at ACOT is hosting a heritage challenge this month and I thought to myself, "No time like the present to scrap a little bit of amazing history!"  There is a bit of twist this month...love.  I decided to put a maternal spin on the twist and used a photo of my great grandmother with her mother, my great great grandmother!  How amazing is it to have a photo like this?  Of course, the photo on the page is a scanned copy of the original, but still!

I used Pink Paislee's "Sweetness" papers and K & Company's "Spring Blossom" die cuts and "Life Journey" paper.  The trim is Websters Pages "Bloomers" and AMM vintage trims.  My flowers I used are by Recollections.  To keep with the "vintage" feel I wanted this page to have, I chalked my edges with ColorBox Cat's Eyes chalk pad in dark brown.  I love lace on heritage pages so I used a Martha Stewart border punch on my layered papers.  I think Pink Paislee's "Sweetness" line definitely makes "vintage" a lot less intimidating.  These papers have been some of the easiest to work with!  Love 'em!!

 These are some close ups of the details and textures.  I just LOVED the sentiment on that die cut.  It reads, "For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains."  I thought that was just perfection for this page, especially since my great grandmother was a big part of my childhood and adolescence and she is missed terribly.

Anyway, thanks for stopping on by!
