StuckOnUSketches - MUM

In the few years that I have been scrapbooking this is the first completed layout I have made using a photo of my late Mum.  I have at least 3 in progress but have never been able to finish them - this time I created the layout THEN added the photo - think it is down to the fact that I only have this one photo of her and she was only 19 at the time.

As usual the sketch over at StuckonUSketches is fantastic and perfect for the Kaisercraft papers I bought recently at Grimsby Crafts - yummy scrummy vintage - luurve them!!!.  I used my faithful MS round the edge punch, a Cheery Lynn Doily die, Spellbinders Banner die, TH Tag die for the label, cream ribbon and pearls, a lovely cream Prima butterflies, a pearl flourish cut in half, TH photo strip and some Prima Flowers to finish it off and here it is....

Right - off to photo my Stampotique piece

Thanks for looking
