Today I would like to share with you a layout I completed for the "Let's Scrap" Blog Hop http://www.letsscrap.ning.com/ You should drop by the site and look at all of the wonderful layouts that the members have created. There is still plenty of time to participate as it doesn't end until February 14th.
This is a layout featuring a photo of my Grandparents and their sons. My Father on the right and his younger brother. I love looking at the old photos...this one in particular as all of these family members are now gone.
I've used a lovely line of papers from Sweden. They are from the "Magnolia" company. This company also makes beautiful stamps. The colours are soft Indigo blues and creamy yellows. The background paper has a lovely silver sheen to it. They show up much richer when seen IRL. The blue flowers are "Prima" and the yellow/blue rose is "Wild Orchid Crafts". The lettering is done with the Cricut and "Storybook" cartridge. I've also used "Martha Stewart" punches and added faux stitching. The pearls are by "Kaiser".
I hope you've enjoyed seeing this layout. Thanks for dropping by...
