I love this picture of my grandparents from the 1920's!  I'm working on a book for my dad; it's slow but sure at this point.  I need to check out a few more facts before I journal this one.  I believe it was taken outside of the mortuary where they were working at the time, but I need to make sure of the state before I do any writing.

This background paper is from BoBunny.   The large parchment flower is from Prima, but I glitzed it up with some seed beads.  The little flowers by the birdbath are from "e".

CTMH embellishments include:  Oceanside Sequins, Baroque Brooch, Aqua Dots, Small Flourishes.

CTMH stamps include:  Amour and Fabulous You.  The paper strips are also from CTMH.

This was inspired by the challenge over at 123 Get Scrappy.  I chose to go with the top row.  I used lace from my stash, mint color background, and there are feathers on the birds.  Ok, that last one was a stretch!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
