        Here is my entry for the sketch challenge…a photo of my Son, Larry and the Maid of Honor at a wedding. She asked him to clasp her necklace when we took the photo.
        I burned the edges with a candle, made Prima paper clay flowers and leaves and painted them with magicals and silks. Used the Prima Mold for the artifact under the photo and treated it with VerDay. Chandelier is Black Embossed and title is Cricut Cut…Adore

                The Tranquility Collection by Blue Fern Studios is perfect for vintage photos; I’ve used the Calm pattern paper as a base for my layout.

                I decided to try using the Ranger Distress Grit Paste that came in the August Mediums Add-On with one of my favorite stencils (Prima #560898) to create a background and I’m so pleased with the results – a clear white with a lot of texture.
                The Mediums Kit also came with several jars of BFS embossing powders, in Mushroom and In the Navy. I’ve used these on my chipboard butterflies from Bo Bunny, part of the Embellishment Add-On.

                Once all was prepped and dried, I matted my photos with some scraps before adhering them to the base.
                Next, I took some lace that I’ve had for quite a while and used it to create a border on the bottom of the images, as well as a strip in the upper corner.
                Some of the flowers are from the Flower Add-On; most are from my stash. (Yes, I’m really trying to use up my er, collection.)
                Also from the collection are a crystal dangle and the Melissa Frances resin banner that has become my title.

                The woman in the first photo is my mother; the men in the second are three of her four brothers, my Uncles Vinny, Pat and Paul. They were standing in my grandmother’s back yard behind the garage and in front of her rock garden.
                The back of the photos were stamped “March 1943”, but the trees in the background are too full for a March in western New York; in fact, they wouldn’t have started to bud yet. Judging from the sweaters that my mother and Uncle Pat were wearing, I’m guessing that they were taken in October, 1942.

                  Beautiful, Barbara. That chandelier is a great touch.

                  Peggy, love how you pulled the blues out in your layout. Still jealous of that stencil, too.

                      Where do I begin?
                      The DT LO’s are gorgeous!! Just what I needed to motivate me to get scrapping!

                      Barbara – What a beautiful LO! Where did you get that chandelier? LOVE it!!!

                      Peggy – OMG!! Your LO is beautiful and I wholeheartedly agree with Jan, you really did pull the blues out perfectly. Those photos are timeless, you really complimented them with your design choices.

                                Hope I’m not too late, but at least I did finnish this layout at last.

                                  Hanne I love this, the three photos fit perfectly with the colouring of the layout, I love the chippie treatment, the leafy flourishes and the lovely stencil work in the background!
