Special Moments Layout And A Birthday Give Away!

 If pictures could only talk and tell you the story behind them.  I can only imagine! 
This is my grandmother and I going to assume that the gentlemen in the picture most have been my grandfather's boss.  My grandfather was a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Canada. I can tell from the picture that my grandmother was very proud of this moment. She was all dressed up and looked so beautiful.  I'm thrilled to have this picture and based my layout on Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays Layout Sketch #22.
A benefit from cleaning out my scrapbook room was all of the papers I came across that I forgot I had.  I used Prima's Strawberry Kisses and Shabby Chic paper.
See that gorgeous doily?  I cut it out from one of my new Cheery Lynn Doily Dies, English Tea Party!  Just love the detail in the die!

A lot of fussy cut work went into this layout and I enjoyed every minute of it!

Well I thought that I would have a give away today since it's my birthday and here is what I have to offer:
 12 x 12 double sided papers, stickers and  2 stamps from the Imaginisce B-Day Bash Collection.  All you need to do is be a follower and leave me some birthday wishes!  I'll draw a winner on August 31st!
Hope you can stop by Frosted Designs to see what the DT has create and join in on the sketch challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
. . .  Debbie

Supplies used:  Prima Marketing Strawberry Kisses Collection and Shabby Chic Collection, My Mind's Eye 29th Street Market paper,  K & Company Frame, Cheery Lynn Designs English Tea Party Doily Die, Stickles Lime Green and Yellow, SEI Bark Chalk Ink Block
