You Are Such A Blessing

It's Fabulous Friday over at Frosted Designs and I could not pass up this week's challenge, Going Vintage.
I used a precious old photo of my mom for my layout.
The original photo is very small and full of cracks and scratches.
I resized it just a little and decided to leave it untouched.    A few weeks ago I was organizing my scrapbook room and came across some papers I had purchased a while back by Shabby Green Door.    I thought they were perfect for the photo!
I added some dainty roses I purchased from the Flying Unicorn Store and some lace and a doily from my stash.
I punched some flowers out and inked them and added some pearls!
Frosted Designs sponsor for our Going Vintage Challenge is Vintage Street Market  and one lucky person will win these beautiful tinted tapes.  Come on over and take a look at what the DT has created here.
Now if you are like me, with no special plans for the long holiday weekend, there will be plenty of time to scrap.  Check out the July sketch at Artful Delight.
Create a project using the sketch for a chance to win the July kit:
For more inspiration, check out the challenge at These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things, Your Favorite Collection. Create a project centering around your favorite collection for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to Sadly this is the last challenge for Fave Things!  My term as a DT member was short, but I enjoyed being a part of the fabulous DT Julie has put together.  Julie wears many hats and has made the decision to close down Fave Things.  Sometimes life just gets too busy and complicated and  something has to go.  I understand Julie's decision and thank her for the wonderful opportunity I had as a DT member.
Hope you all enjoy the holiday weekend!  The weather here will be hot and humid.
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Deb, how gorgeous is that pic of your mum, framed it looks stunning, and the paper is amazing fit for it. The arrows on this month's arTastic layout were actually rub ons, I think they are really old, isn't it funny how older stash brought out can have a new lease of life sometimes. Love to you, Melxx
