Scrapbook Tuesday - Family Love

Hello Friends

Gosh!  What has happened to the heating?  After a few warmish days, we suddenly woke up to a "brisk" morning!  Please no more snow for a while!

On to today's layout.  One of my Mother-in-Law on Christmas Day.  I chose not to do a Christmas layout but picked the colours and designs of Joan's jumper out as they reminded me of the Boofle papers I have.  I was most surprised Joan let me take a photo of her as she usually shys away!

I used black cardstock and flicked various paints (including some Paperartsy Fresco paints) using various brushes (I wonder if Hubby notices the paint in his toothbrush??  Only JOKING!).  

I cut the fonts on my Cricut.  The flowers are from my SU stamp and punch set.  The stamping on the little pink Snippet is from another SU set. 
Tags are Tim Holtz die and above you can just see the new Spellbinders die in use.  Bakers Twine from Papermania.
I do love those wooden buttons, bought from a local Wool shop.

The word background paper has had some words glossy accented (is that a word?) to highlight some of Joan's attributes.
Love the splish splashy background on this paper.  Hope you do too!  Lots of Snippets in this so I will be sharing with the girls in the Playground.  Must see how the straw animals are looking!  I wonder if Mrs A has done her donkey yet!

Thanks for popping over.  Let me know what you think.  I love to read your comments!

Is Hubby walking around with pink teeth, Sam?? I love your spattered background. It's a great LO and well done for snapping your MIL. It's a lovely photo.
We DO have snow today, yuk yuk yuk after all that Springlike weather!

Fantastic layout. I love how it is obviously a Christmas photo but not Christmas papers. It is so lovely.
I loved the picking out of words to decribe the subject. So nice for wveryone to see how she is loved.

What a fantastic layout - I love the pastel papers against the black, and the splatter on the background really makes it special - just wonderful!
