In going through my photos I came across one of my grandparents. It was a picture that one of my sisters had taken on a Christmas Eve many years ago. They have passed on since then, 10 and 7 years ago. So when I came across this rare photo of them cuddling, unaware of being observed and a photo being taken, I had to scrapbook it. I rarely saw (at least from what I can recall) the two of them show affection when others were around. And that makes this photo very special to me. Especially since in their last years I was too far away to visit, a student with little income. I couldn't even make it to either of the funerals. My Grandfather died when he was 90, and my Grandmother three years later at 94.
I wanted to make a special page for this photo, and this is what I came up with. I apologize for the pixilated image, I've been having problems with that lately.
I spent hours cutting up pages of designer paper, but it was worth it. Here are some close ups of the work on the page.
No stamping or Spellbinders, (whoops, I did use 2 Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant cuts behind photo added later 2-5-2012) just all hand cut with scissors (so everything else was cut with scissors or paper slicer), a lot of ink distressing, and Liquid Pearls and pearls.
So there you have it. I won't be posting for the rest of this week, unless I end up with more time that I thought, but I have commitments that will keep me from crafting this week. I'll be back as soon as possible though. Thank you for stopping by today! And have a great week!
