|Story:||This is a picture of my husband’s great grandparents, that I came across at his aunt’s house. I removed the photo and the mats that it is sandwiched in between from an old frame, but I dared not try to extract the photo. Instead, I scanned it, with its attached filigree border in tact.|
I need to find out more about them, and when I do I will write it down on the button-topped tag you see tucked underneath the left side of the photo. I purposed placed "their story" near the tag. What better title could I give a page about such a grand looking couple than "The Great Grands."
|Style:||I thought such an old fashioned portrait deserved special treatment. It happened that I was also due to work on a layout using flowers for The Studio Challenges. I pulled out some fancy floral paper, Prima flowers and antique buttons to do justice to this fabulous photo. As it turns out there are flowers represented here three times. Can you spot all three?|
|Stash:||Patterned paper – 7 Gypsies Moments collection – Express Yourself|
Flowers, leaves and beaded flower centers – Prima
Alphabets - Studio Calico Naturals and Cosmo Cricket minis
Tag – Making Memories
Metal dragonfly – perhaps SEI?
Lace trims, tulle, thread – from stash
Buttons – from their granddaughter’s button box
I am enjoying scrapping about my husband’s ancestors based on the information I gathered in his aunt’s house, and the stories his mom is telling us when I ask for more details. Tell me, have you scrapped about great grandparents yet?
