Remember All Of The Little Details

One thing that's nice when you take the time to clean out your scrapbook stash, is coming across papers you forgot you had.  I loved The Girls Paperie, and was sad when they were no longer going to manufacture their beautiful collections.  I had held on to some of their Paper Girl Collection and used them for my layout.
The beautiful peonies in my layout were from my mother's garden a few years ago.    Gorgeous as ever!
Sadly, with my mother suffering advanced dementia, she no longer knows what a peony is.  I'm thankful to have this picture to remind me of her once beautiful peonies.

My layout is based on Sketch #25, which I designed for Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays Challenge.  The reveal is today and I hope you can stop by to see what our DT has created.
I love when I can incorporate a challenge into my layout. Stuck On U Sketches has a die cut  heart challenge currently going on.

I punched several layers from a Die-namics die, Petal Point Trio from a dress pattern to make this flower and placed a beautiful heart adorned with a Webster's Pages Cameo next to it. 
Here are a few closeups:
A beautiful frame by K and Company adorned with a detailed flourish from Cheery Lynn's 
And finally a lace border cut with Cheery Lynn's Border Carnivale die
Thanks for stopping by!
. . . Debbie

Supplies used:  Girl's Paperie Paper Girl Collection, K and Company Frame and Life's Journey Paper, Creative Imaginations  Narratives y Karen Russell paper, Webster's Pages Cameo, My Favorite Things Die- Namics die, Cheery Lynn dies.
