|...I miss your smile every day xxx "|
This LO is just one of many that I have of my smiling, loving (late) Grandma, together with myself and my DS#2 in 1992.
I've based my LO design on the March 15th 'Once Upon a Sketch' sketch challenge:
In addition to having the sketch inspiration, there is Journalling Criteria: Finish this line "I miss...".
I miss alot about my Grandma especially her smile. I also miss her garden full of beautiful flowers and fruit - hence the watering can in the cluster (right hand side). I chose this particular photo because this is how I remember her and how I'd always like to remember her.
I have included a 'hidden' tag with a few ways I miss having Grandma in my life. Grandma was like a second mother to me, and my sisters, and she was always 'there' for me - and was an especially good listener when I was going through tough times.
In addition to the sketch challenge I am submitting this for the "random" March challenge over at Scrapping Outback - "must use chipboard on the LO and Yellow is dominate colour, at least 2 colours of ink, 2 or more PP, and string'.
I challenged myself to use red and blue as my 'other colours', so that I could also enter into the Southern Girls' #40 - colour challenge - Red, Blue and Yellow!
card stock & pps: Jenni Bowlin; Prima & Kaiser flowers; A2Z chipboard title; TLC crafts handmade butterfly; My2angels rhinestone chain, twine, filigree and distress embossing powder (broken china blue); glimmer mist (turquoise & sun sisters); versa color ink; gel pen; unknown watering can and resin flowers.
I have totally enjoyed this challenge. I'm very happy to say that I've been commissioned to create a few cards for a friend, so I'll be putting scrapping 'on hold' for a few days :) Have a great week. hugs'n'hearts Mazz xxx
