A Look Into The Past . . . Timeless Memories

I am going to admit that for quite awhile I was hooked on the monthly kit subscriptions.  I've have numerous kits I haven't even touched and made the decision awhile back to cancel my monthly kit subscriptions.  There are a few kit clubs out there that I love and once in awhile, if my budget permits I indulge and buy a kit.  Swirlydoos February kit, Things Remembered caught my attention, not only because it was crying out "vintage layouts", but more so for the beautiful colors. 
Recently my sister gave me an envelope full of vintage photos from my dad's side of the family.  I came across this picture of my great grandmother and instantly knew that I was going to use my Swirlydoos kit!  This layout is my final DT project for Stuck On U Sketches.  We were given a  Pagemaps layout to use:
 When I first got the sketch I was a little thrown off  by all of the circles.  Actually I was clueless as to what I was going to do.  Swirlydoos kit to the rescue with the beautiful papers by TPC Studio and mirror embellishments!
Everything else on my layout came from my stash.  I was looking though some of the old kits I had purchased and found some beautiful Prima flowers, a Dusty Attic scroll frame and a beautiful cameo pin!
 I took the cameo apart and used three different pieces of it on my layout:
 I want to thank Nanne, Sandi and Leah, the co-creators of Stuck On U Sketches for allowing me to be a part of their amazing design team!  The invitation was open for me to remain on their team, but I made the decision to step down to lighten my DT  load some. 
Don't forget that Frosted Designs is having a Design Team call!  You can check out the details here!
