I don't know if it is me, but since I started the Scrapbook Tuesdays at the beginning of the year, Tuesdays seem to come round quicker? Maybe not but it seems to for me. Just as well I am enjoying my own little Challenge isn't it?
So here is Tuesday and it is time for me to share this week's layout with you......
The photo is of a friend of mine who sadly passed away a few weeks ago. I met Greta and her husband John, at the first Scottish Dance class I ever went to a loooong time ago. Greta was born in Scotland and was a mother, grandmother as well as a very warm and kind hearted person, and I hope I have endorsed these attributes in my layout. She was a sewer hence why I chose to use hexagons, which I cut on my Sizzix die all from my Snippets box, and laid on a red background to echo Greta's top.
The photograph was given to all who attended her funeral along with another photograph, of Forget Me Nots, with some personal details on, all in a cellophane pocket which contained Forget Me Not seeds. I thought this was a lovely touch and I have echoed this with a blue ribbon and a punched flower at the top right corner of the layout.
The Thistles were stamped with a NBIS which I have had for some years. Shame on me! The letters were from a Cosmo Cricket set, which again is VOS. The red ribbon is a Snippet from my C Album last year.
The Piper was cut on my Silhouette along with the "thinking of you", using white cardstock then inked with DI. I then brushed with Perfect Pearls and foam mounted. You can see the top of the other photo that was included with the photo, which I have popped a punched tab on.
Thanks for calling by and please leave me a comment - we all love comments! Of course I shall be taking this over the Snippets Playground just as soon as I have put my wellies on - there are plenty of puddles right now and some late mischief before Miss comes back from "Teacher Training". Why not use some scraps on a project and join in with the fun and mayhem of the Snippets Playground?
