Great Grandparents

March 21, 2020

Today’s page shares a photo taken when my daughter was about 6 months old.  We lived in Dubbo in those days and Ron’s Grandparents lived at Forbes which was about a 2 2-1/2 hour drive.  We often took a drive to visit them and this photo was taken on one of those visits.  Ron’s grandfather lived to be 93 years old and worked on the land his whole life.  His grandmother lived to be 83.  So long life runs in his family.  I began by attaching a square of the Soft Sea Foam vellum from the So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper to a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page.  This vellum comes in three colours and is already embossed – so pretty.  This Vellum is one of the new additions to the products you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order.  I attached a piece of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the left hand side of of the vellum.  I love this design it reminds me of old newspaper or journals.  I attached my photo to Early Espresso card and then to the Designer Series Paper.  I punched a strip of Early Espresso card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it below the photo.  I stamped the single flower from the Tags in Bloom stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the flower fill image using Cherry Cobbler ink and the flower centre fill using Daffodil Delight ink.  I cut Mossy Meadow card using the die from the Birthday Dies.  I attached the flower to the leaves and then to the lower left hand corner of the photo.  The title is cut from Early Espresso card using the retired Little Letters Dies.  I stamped the tag image from the Tags in Bloom stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the flower fill images using Cherry Cobbler ink and Daffodil Delight ink and the leaf fill images using Mossy Meadow ink.  I cut out the image and attached it to the right hand side of the Vellum.  I created the journaling on my computer, printed it onto Whisper White card and punched it out using the Label Me Lovely Punch.  The journaling is attached to the centre of the stamped tag.  In case you are wondering how I attached the Vellum, well, I only used adhesive underneath the Designer Series Paper and also the tag element.  This is sufficient to hold it in place without having adhesive show through it.  My grandchildren looked at this photo and thought I was their Mum.  You know, Nan could never have been young!

Bye for now,
