LOC Thankful for You Layout

I think it has been forever since I have created a layout and this one is special to me


Those lovely ladies in this photo are my beautiful Nana and her youngest sister, my Great Auntie Fiona.  Both of these ladies have gone home but their memories are embedeeply within within the family - they were the most amazing ladies.


I used the Kaiser DP given to me by my friend Debbie - it seemed perfect for this layout, along with some gorgeous embellishments


such as this Spellbinders Decorative Dress Forms Die,illustrated for Spellbinders by Laura Kirste Campbell and Nina Brackett, who wouldn't love to own this!

Gorgeous handmade lace from my friend Maxine


a sentiment from the Layers of Color Flutterescent clear art stamp set

Added some flowers from the Flowering Gems clear art stamp set

You know it wouldn't be complete for me without some gorgeous Wild Orchid Flowers and another Spellbinders Die - the Fleur De Lis Borderabilities Petite


finishing off with lace and pearls - all of my favourite things!

This layout is for the following challenges:
Crafty Boots - Anything Goes
