Mum and Dad


Monday afternoon I decided to spend some time making a couple of scrapbook layouts. I just haven't had time recently and I do love making them. This is my Mum and Dad's wedding. Sadly they parted just after I got married but I wanted to preserve this happy day in my scrapbook. It's such a beautiful old photograph. The lady on the right is my dear Grandma, my Mum's mother, who passed away a few years ago. She was in her 90s and my Mum is 80 so I am hoping long life runs in the family.

I kept the layout simple as I didn't want too many embellishments to detract from the large photo. I've used some of my favourites, Tim Holtz vintage shabby papers, guipure lace, Prima flowers and cabuchons. The swirls were made with a Memory Box die and the simple title numbers are EK success stickers.
