Family Life

It feels good to have a little spare time to create a layout.  My crafty time has taken a hugh hit as of late, with most of my free time being spent taking care of my mom.

Lately I have been drawn to scrapping old family photos of my mom.  I guess with so much of my time focused on her failing health, it seems fitting to get some layouts done highlighting her times as a child, or in this case as a teenager.  I found a photo of my mom and her siblings all gathered together on the couch with their parents.

I used the new sketch over at Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays Challenge, created by DT member Karin:
I love the new manufacturer Authentique Paper and used their Spendid collection on my layout.

I broke out my never before used Tim Holtz Tattered flowers die and made these beautiful flowers:
Not sure where the buttons came from.  They were in my stash and at some time were part of a kit that I had purchased.

Just a reminder . . . Frosted Designs is having a DT call.  If you would like to be a part of our great DT, please check out the details here.

Thanks for stopping by!
. . .  Debbie

Supplies used:  Authentique Paper Splendid Collection, Webster's Pages Wonderfall Collection, Die Cuts With A View cardstock, Tim Holtz Tatterd Florals Die, K & Company frame, Tsukineko Jumbo Java ink.

I always find it so fun to reminisce and scrap the old vintage photos! I need to make an effort to do more of them myself!

This is really grand, and I love the Authentic papers!
