I was honored to be left the family albums in my mother in laws personal will. She knew how much preserving memory meant to me. I will cherish each and every memory that each photo holds. And I will start to scrap copies of the beautiful photo's. This one is my mother in law taken in 1951. She sure was gorgeous. She loved butterflies and Easter was her favorite holiday besides Christmas for obvious reasons. I wanted to reflect her memory with the colors of Easter, as she passed away during Lent. This LO was done for the Round Robin Challenge at Swirlydoos. It was pure therapy creating this LO. I used parts of 2 Spotlight kits from Swirlydoos. Annalee and Fairy Flora. Both kits are gorgeous!!
The circle is punched with a Martha Stewart corner punch and dotted with Prima crystals.
I painted Dusty Attic with Lumiere paint and did journaling on a Prima Fairy Flora journal card. I created the flowers using my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die and my Swirly Hibiscus Flower Tutorial.
I used 2 of Martha Stewart's deep edge punches and wove some ribbon through it. I painted the Thickers letters with Lumiere paint. I stickled the butterflies. I used some old satin to make the yoyo flowers and sewed some old buttons for the centers. The larger flower was made using my Swirly Hibiscus tutorial. I used Rum Punch Glimmer Mist to color the cream card stock. and Inked the edges in an olive colored ink.
