A Rose By Another Name ~ Once Upon A Sketch May Challenge ~~ WAS CHOSEN AS ONE OF THE TOP 3 OVER AT FROSTED DESIGNS!!


Hi everyone!!!  Boy has it been hard to slow down on my scrapping for the last week, but my hand is getting better and so I decided to make a layout..  I found this beautiful sketch over at Once Upon A Sketch and I really wanted to try it out.   The theme we were to use for our layout was "Mum".. anyway you want to interpret it...

Here is the sketch...

I decided to scrap my Grandmother who passed away in the summer of 2006 at the age of 96 1/2 and she was still living on her own up to the very end.  Granted my parents were always close by after my Grandfather passed away, but she was a very independent lady. 

One of the things she loved were her beautiful flowers, so I decided to scrap this photo I found from 1957 of her and her roses....  I added the little insert photo to show her face since you can't see it in the other photo..

Here are a few close ups...

Here you can see Distressed Edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Sewing, Spellbinders Parisian Accents, Martha Stewart Wild Flowers Deep Edge Punch, Bow with Bling from stash..


Distressed Edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Sewing, Spellbinders Parisian Accents, Fussy Cut Large Rose, Stick On Letters, Misc. Butterflies from stash...  The insert photo is popped up on pop dots...


Distressed Edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Sewing, Spellbinders Parisian Accents, Fussy Cut Large Rose, Stick On Numbers, and Prima Say It In Crystals...


Distressed Edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Sewing, Spellbinders Parisian Accents, Another Fussy Cut Large Rose, Fabric Covered Buttons, Misc Butterfly from Stash, Martha Stewart Wild Flowers Deep Edge Punch...  You can also see my hidden journaling tag here with a 3-D Rose attached to it....


And finally my journaling tag..
