I came across this picture of my grandmother and fell in love with her dress. I'm not quite sure when this picture was taken. If you click on the picture you can see more of the detail.
I based my layout on the sketch over at Stuck On U Sketches. This sketch was designed by Leah Schaeffer, one of their design team members.
I decided to flip the sketch and based my layout on this:
This layout gave me the opportunity to dig into a lot of my embellishments and I had a lot of fun adding all the different elements to the page. I used ribbon in place of the strips on the sketch. I wanted to mimic the ribbon tie on my grandmother's dress, and decided to tie a ribbon around the picture. Paper by Scribble Scrabble and Graphic 45. Flowers and flourishes by Prima. Laser die cut by Dusty Attic. Metal embellishment by Making Memories, title American Crafts. It's hard to tell, but I stitched around the brown polka dot paper with my sewing machine! It's gets more use now with my layouts then it ever did with sewing!
Thanks for stopping by!
