My Lovely Mum~
What a miserable day, weather wise here, it was raining and cold.
Hello May!! I was expecting you to be a tad nicer than this!!
I have been busy Scrapbooking again today. I got my jobs done in the afternoon and tonight I have been having a "playing".
I love this picture of my beautiful Mum.
It was taken about four years ago at a relatives Wedding, I thought this picture of her, not looking at the camera was so natural and lovely, she looked so nice in her light grey suit, with her little fascinator popping out of her fabulous salt and pepper hair! She is a really trendy, young looking lady with great style. (The person in the corner of the photo with a white jacket on, her back to you, is Yours Truly, a great photo.....showing my back rather than my front!! Ha, ha)
I have chosen to do this lovely sketch over at "Once upon a Sketch" and the theme to go with the sketch is "Mum".
I have hundreds of photo's of my Mum, some gorgeous B&W ones of her in the 50's (she was so gorgeous) and loads of her on holiday with Dad (they used to love their holls and went all over) .
On Saturday she became a Great Nana, so no doubt I will have hundreds more now taken with her holding Baby Iris.
I have used some papers from Scrapperdashery, and other leftover bits from my stash.
I like this base paper, it has words from famous people written on the background.........this one has the words of William Wordsworth's poem "Daffodil's".
I have also used Tim Holtz large Alterations Bodyform Die.
Hobbyhouse Pearls and Roses.
MS border punch.
Butterfly stamp by Inkilicious.
Chipboard heart and flower. (I have used paper on the heart and coloured the flower with markers).
All the edges have been inked with Walnut stain.
I have written one of my favourite sayings on the Journalling part of the Layout....
"To the world you are just one person, but to one person you are the World". I love this.
