Remember When ...

 Remember when ...  I was much younger.  This photo is me when I was 17 in 1968.  The top photo is me now at age 62!  Geez - It seems like yesterday until I look in the mirror!  Or it could be when I see my 4 children age 40 to age 30 along with my 4 grandchildren.  I realize that time really does fly by.  Especially when I visit my mother age 81 who has Alzheimer  and her mother (my grandmother) who will be 101 this summer.  She still drives, lives in her own apartment, and will go visit my mother. 

I wanted to do a layout different from anything that I have ever done.  I used Gesso paint and lots of stamps.  I then tore scrap pieces of paper and started layering it all together. 

 You can see here the various layers that I used.

This is a closer look at the flowers that I used plus all the other additions.

I used the follow items but is just scraps that I have around my scrapbook room:

White Gesso Paint
Dark, light Pink, Green Paint
Prima Flowers
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch

Thank you again for looking!



I have always loved this photo of my daughters Heather and Mandy with Logan - Mandy's son.  I have joined a challenge on for Pintrest which has the colors of red, white, and blue.  I was in the mood to scrap so I just looked around for papers that might work.  I found the background paper from BoBunny and another from Fabscrap.  I am not sure who did the paper with the birds but I believe it might be from Melissa Francis.  Sorry...but I tossed away the rest of the paper!  I cut out a circle and added modeling paste to a mask (the clock).  I stamped the little hearts and added lots of flowers.  I also used a blue ink  around the edges of the papers.  I used a dark blue ribbon from Maya Roads - at least I believe it is by them for I have had it a year! 

Here is a list of items that I used:

BoBunny - Serinity Damask Paper
Fabscrap - Shabby Chic Stripe Paper
Martha Stewart - Circle Cutter
Liquitex - Modeling Paste
Maya Roads - Flowers
Prima - Flowers
Blue Ink
Prima - Junkyard Findings - Lamp
