Blogger's Challenge - The Grace of Grandmothers

Click on pictures to see a larger resolution




It is as " Grandmothers " that our mothers come into the fullness of their grace
Christopher Morley
Hello fellow bloggers and readers. Yes it is Friday already and that means Blogger's Challenge time. Take a gander over HERE to feast your eyes on the different interpretations of this sketch, given to us by the group's list mom, Lisa Somerville.
As you can see, I wandered off a bit from the sketch, that's me...The background that the photo is placed on, started to be a card and I was not happy with it...Off to never, never land and it became a Scrapbook Page.
I am especially proud of this layout; as it showcases my very young -looking and I might add energetic mother...Who by the way, can work circles around anyone of us.
The patterned paper is from the Kioshi Collection Pack by Basic Grey. The Chip Stickers and Epoxy Stickers are also from the Kioshi Basic Grey line. The aqua blue photo matt, and large white journaling letters were die-cut from my Cricut Expression Machine using the StoryBook cartridge.
All of the products used on this layout are from a store, which I am proud to be a designer for: Scrapbookingfanatics.
Jayme Loge is the owner and a hard working gal who runs a tight ship. Jayme is a writer for the magazine, Canadian Scrapbooker.

thank you so much for visiting my blog
