Friday couldn't have come soon enough, as I've been anxious to reveal my first layout for
I'm thrilled to be part of their great team of designers! Their sketch this week is a two pager by Sketchy Thursdays. When I first saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use these pictures and paper, but did not have enough of the paper to complete two pages. So I condensed the two pager into a one pager.
I love scrapping with old pictures. These are of my mom and her family back from 1940. My mom lived in Canada and her dad was a Royal Canadian Mountie. In these pictures her family, along with my grandfather's assistant Ormond and his children are out for the day on a boat ride. All of the paper and most of the embellishments are Pink Paislee, Bayberry collection.
Don't you just love this beautiful scrolled flourish border? I received the Cricut Reminisce Accents cartridge for my birthday. It is packed with beautiful detailed flourishes, scrolls, flowers and an alphabet.
I used my Fiskars scallop punch to create this beautiful flower, which I edged with some gold stickles.
The beautiful metal embellishments are by Making Memories.
If you haven't seen my post from yesterday, I Adore You, please scroll down to yesterday's post and take a look. I completed this layout for Sketches In Thyme's new challenge. This is my most favorite layout ever!
Thanks for stopping by!
