Grandma

Can we just take a minute and yell... "YIPEE!! FRIDAY IS FINALLY HERE!!" Don't some weeks just seem longer than others?!! This is one of those weeks for me!! But the good news is.... there is a new challenge at Frosted Designs! This week it is a color challenge... brown, aqua, and lime green!! So... get out your scrappy goodies, make something fab, and link it up over at Frosted Designs!! We love to see everyone's creations!! And, check out what my design sisters created for you... you won't be disappointed!!!

This is a picture of my grandmother... isn't she just precious?!! I love this photo of her! I found the papers (Colorbok - Woodhaven) and knew they would work great for the LO I had in mind!! Most of the embellishments are from K&Co. The flowers are Prima, some of which I chalked a bit with light brown and added a pearl center. Pearls are from Recollections. Key is Making Memories. Cricut carts used are Mini Monograms, Mother's Day & Storybook!! I stamped the cute little pocket/envelope with an Autumn Leaves Stampology. I wrapped a ribbon around it and added a pin that I had from my Paper Poppy March kit! The title "Grandma" was cut using the Mother's Day cart. I painted the flowers with Smooch Pearl paint and added some details with my Souffle pens. On the tag I tucked in, I wrote down some information about my grandmother that I want my children to know someday; things like her full name, married names (she was married twice), birthday, where she lived, school she attended... you know - stuff you never think to ask but wish you knew!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a closer look at my LO... It means so much to me that with so many blogs out there,  you would take the time to stop and visit mine for a bit!! I have the bestest bloggy friends out there!!

Fabulous vintage style layout, Barb. I still remember when 19 inches was the ideal waist and looks like she had one! So glad you made the little pouch for those important details. And I love that Grandma cut .. but don't have that cart! Love your layout of Lauren and the goats .. going back for a second look at those precious photos!
