Yesterday's Memories ~ Stuck On U Sketches ~~ RECEIVED THE COMET AWARD AT PAPERCRAFT STAR

Hi everyone...  It's Friday and you know what that means... it's time for another sketch reveal over at Stuck On U Sketches and this one is from Nanné Harry and here it is...



  
Lately I've been looking through my old family photos and thought this sketch would work perfect as a Heritage LO with all of these fabulous layers.  The photo I chose is one of my Dad, my Uncle, my Grandparents and my Great Great Grandmother (my Grandmother's Grandmother).  We are thinking this was taken around 1938..  I feel so lucky to have these original photos to scan and scrap..

Here are a few close ups..
Here you can see lots of distressing, Prima Flowers, Prima Say It in Pearls, Martha Stewart Punched Edges...


More distressing, Lace Ribbon, Metal Butterfly, and Metal Brads...


Here is a close up of all of the different distressed layers and another metal butterfly...

Here are a few challenges this layout will qualify for...
Frosted Designs ~ Rolled Paper
Simply Create Too ~ It's About Time -- (my interpretation is the Title-- Yesterday's Memories)
Moving along with the Time ~ Garden or Flower Challenge
Little Red Wagon ~ Use at least 3 Flowers
Papercraft Star ~ Polka dots



Sorry this is such a short post...  My husband took off a few days of work and we have been very busy building fence.  And I promised my DD that I would watch little GS Zach Friday, Saturday and Sunday...  So not a lot of time for blogging!!!


Be sure and check out SOUS for more inspiration using this sketch!!

Thanks for dropping by!!
Have a great day!!
Hugs!!
Pin It!
