And I will bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there and the moths.

My Grandparents

This is a layout of my grandparents from my mother's side(a few years back) I scrapped it for my BOM. I so wish I had more heritage photos....I'd have the time of my life scrapping them..unfortunately all I have are recent photos...but I am ever so grateful for those.

All the papers on this layout are from My Mind's Eye So Sophie. I absolutely love that new line, it's beautiful.
Ok I tried something new this time. A fellow amazingly talented scrapper, Tara Orr uses paper doileys and I have always admired the look she achieves with them...sooooo I went out, bought some and gave it a shot. I L-O-V-E it! I glimmer misted it with Olive Vine and used it as part of my background. Now if I could find some square paper doileys, I'd be set!=)

Closeup of the Prima flower cluster, I have noticed that lately I have been stuck on hydrangeas, they go so well with just about everything!

The branch is a Dusty Attic piece, was so ecstatic to get my hands on some of this beautiful chipboard. I got mine from a shop called Stay True to God, be sure to visit her!
I painted this with brown acrylic paint and then dabbed gold on it to coordinate with the gold from the Tim Holtz metal pieces.

Hope you enjoyed this layout.
Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!
