Koch Family 1950 ~ Sketches In Thyme Challenge No. 24

Hi everyone!!  It's Thursday and that means it's time for another sketch over at Sketches In Thyme!!  Today's sketch is from Creative Scrappers and just  look at the layers you can use on this one, or not!!   That's the fun part about working with sketches...  You design it to fit your photos!!  -- you can copy it verbatim, or turn it, or add to it, or take away from it... All we ask is that you HAVE FUN WITH IT!!! 

This week I've been going through my grandmother's old photo albums and decided to go heritage/vintage..  If you visited early this week you saw my Great Grandparents (1904)  layout that I did for Frosted Designs...  Now for this layout I chose this family photo of my Dad, my Uncle, my Grandmother and  my Grandfather taken around 1950..  I hope your like it.

Here are some close-ups

Here are is some of my distressing... Including distressing the decorative frame with Tim Holtz Walnut Distressing Ink and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Copper..  BTW my dad in sorta in the back there with the big smile on his face...  I believe that this was when he proposed to my mom..

Here are my different punched layers with lace between..  Sprayed the lace with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Olive Vine.  You can also see the SU Victorian Lace BG Stamp which I stamped with SU Basic Brown on the Basic Grey Cappella Pageantry..
Here is a close up of the beautiful flowers and bling and you can also see some of my distressing..

And here you can see my stamped bird and swirls (SU French Flair BG Stamp), another beautiful Prima and more distressing...
