My Layout for 1-2-3 Challenge
"Old World Charm"


Hi there, thanks for stopping by. Today a have a vintage layout to
show you that I have done for the August challenge over at the
I haven't played along before & so when I saw the brief,
I was hooked, as vintage is one of my favourite styles.

Here is the brief....



This gorgeous photo is of my Great Grandmothers sister, so I guess 
that makes her my "Great Great Aunt", I think !!!
Anyway her name was Doris Colless & this pic was taken
in about 1907. My mother tells me that she died when I
was a small baby.
You may have seen a couple of layouts I have scrapped 
of her before, but hey why not, how lucky am I to have these
 beautiful pictures of a family member & to actually
know the history that goes with it ?


As part of the criteria for this challenge was to use the word "OLD"
I spoke to my good friends at 2 Crafty chipboard &
 asked them to make this title up for me. Thanks Vanessa.


This beautiful flourish is also from 2 Crafty chipboard.

Don't you just love this little cameo embellishment, I think it 
matches her necklace ? When I found this I just knew it was
the perfect thing to finish off my layout with.

I really enjoyed doing this challenge & I found the 
three part criteria  a great challenge too.
Definitely think I will be playing along again.

Well thats it for another day.
Until next time.

Once Upon A Sketch August Challenge
"The Magic of You"



Hi there, thanks for calling by.
Today I have my layout that I have done for the August challenge over at

Here  is the current sketch, & as always I have tweeked it up a little.
The journalling theme this month is

good or bad way.

This little sweetie is the Grandaughter of a good friend, & just after
this pic was taken she took her first steps, much to the delight of
her Mummy & Daddy. So this was a very special & memorable
occasion for the family.

This sweet little title, "The Magic of You" is from 
2 Crafty chipboard, as is this chippie chicken wire.


I have done lots of background treatments using various
mediums & mists. I have also used lots of beautiful 
Green Tara flowers, pearl trim  & this is one of their
many beautiful laces. It was white & I misted it pink 
to match my layout.

I also made this wreath from some Green Tara
 " wired cord." I was so happy how it turned out.


Here is my journalling.

Thanks so much for taking the time to call by.
I do hope you liked my layout.
Until next time.
