This is an older photograph ~~ although, at the risk of sounding like my mom or grandma, it just doesn't seem that long ago! I was inspired to dig it out and scrap it when I heard the challenge song over at Scrap it with a Song. "What's the song?" you ask; Stairway to Heaven! I was of course inspired by the title word stairway remembering this photo taken in my grandparents' home--which was a beautiful old colonial style that doubled as their Funeral Home. They lived above the business....but that's another story for another time!
The words "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold" and "There walks a lady we all knowWho shines white light and wants to show How everything still turns to gold" inspired all the gold in the layout.
Here's a video on the process and lace stencil technique:
