Through Her Eyes

Happy Tuesday bloggers, this week The Greeting Farm has a great sketch so I had to use it to create a layout using the yummy new papers at Altered Art and Scrap Playground. First, the sketch:
Next is my take on the sketch:
 I used the new Circa 1934 paper by Cosmo Cricket. It's got great names too, I used Ginger (background), Gable (yellow part of tag), Bette (red part of tag) Astaire (some of the boarders under the pictures) and Garbo (lettering & B side is the matting of the pictures). Aren't those names great!!
These are pictures of my grandmother when she was young, before she was married. I found the great quote and printed it from the computer. I then cut it using George, into a tag and matted it.
 I love my tattered flowers die and I probably use it way too much but it just makes a layout look fab! So here are more tattered flowers on this layout using some leftovers of what I used. I added some bling brads to the centers of the flowers as well.
All my letters were cut by hand (ugh!) but I love the way the title turned out. I also used some lacy ribbon stuff on the tag and as a boarder.

Thanks for stopping and checking out my layout.
