I want to start with a Happy ALMOST Christmas!
The big night is almost here and I hope that you all have a blessed holiday!
I hope that you made time this year to experience the magic that flows
in abundance this time of year and that you've enjoyed all that comes with it!
As much as I am happy for this day, I dread having to wait another year
for Christmas! Why can't it be a 2 or 3 month long holiday? (too much, you say?)
So Happiest of All Holiday's to you and your families!
I know that this time of year is still amazing but that their are
still some struggling so do know that many of you are in
my daily prayers!
(and now onto my post...hehe)
Emma and Grant
If you all can believe it...I've done my very first heritage page! What a gratifying experience! I can't wait to dig in and find more photos from my Mom! =)
Well today we have a stunning sketch made by my wonderful friend, Sandi! I had wanted to do something special and took it in a different route from what I had first thought...
The insanely cool paper is Bo Bunny Et Cetera line. Neato and perfect for this! Just added some more blue and brown inking, a bit of black and the paper became magic! These handsome folks are my Great Grandparents. Emma Gephardt and Grant Snair. I actually had worn her wedding ring for years after I (ahem) outgrew my cheapo wedding ring (replaced only this year with something real, LOL, but getting off topic...)
So this corner is to replicate the circle in the sketch, but instead with my groupings of embellies. The circle Dream is Glitz as is the rub ons. The tag is My Minds Eye and a few other goodies.
The border here is pretty special. This piece of lace is actually something FROM their home. Not sure if it is something that she made herself but it was theirs. How special is that! I've kept the piece in tack and its only folded in half and pulled up and then down from the bottom half of the page. I've used a EK Success plaid punch in blue, corrugated white cardboard, faux leather and lace are both from the Et Cetera line. (Another rub on in that corner as well).
The flower and metal pieces also from this Bo Bunny line. The heart pin came from Emma's home as well, I like to imagine its something she wore and treasured. =) The little frame piece is something I put together with letter stickers.
I've got to say that this is a page I wish you could see in person. I just don't think the photographing does it justice. But I guess they are all just better in person! So...who's coming over? LMBO!
Thanks for coming by today!
