TCR #109 "Simply You"

Hello bloggers, I hope you all had a great weekend . Today I have a page that I had scrapped a few months ago, some of you may remember seeing it before. I have never been totally happy with it, you know how it is!!! I think we all feel like this from time to time. When I saw the current colour pallette over at The Color Room I thought of this layout, so I took it out, pulled a few things apart, added a few things, changed a few things &  I think I am finally happy with it!!!  
I have to say I do love these colours together, very rich & strong.
The lady in my layout is my Grandmother & this photo was taken circa 1920. Don't you just love the hairstyle, NOT!!!! I suppose she would have been quite the fashionista in her day. These photos were actually a photo strip taken in a photo booth. I didn't know they had photo booths back in 1920!!!
I have done lots of fussy cutting here on this fabulous Graphic 45 paper, it was just the perfect paper range to go with these pics. I have used a 2 Crafty chipboard Circle Flourish to place my title on.
All my little flowers are from Green Tara of course. The blue roses were cream & I simply misted them to get the right shade of blue that I needed.
I have journalled on a little tag that I have tied with some netting & tucked in in behind the main photo. Thanks so much for stoppin by. Until next time.
Cheers Di  xo
