The photo in the layout is my grandmother who just celebrated her 97th birthday. The new chapter in her life is living in an assisted living facility. Every day is a new day for her and she loves it. She loves flowers and I only thought it fitting to cover the layout in different roses. Her favorite flower.
The white flowers are Zva Creative 2.5" Dual- Flowers - White & Dusky Pink -[FL-04CA-128].
The beautiful leafy vine is the Zva Creative 8" Branch w leaves -[FL-04CA-109].
The beautiful set of flourishes is Flickering - Iridescent Crystal -[CR-05CA-126].
The pair of crystals is perfect to frame photo's.
This is just a closeup of the floral cluster in the corner of the layout. I have paired Zva's flowers and leaves 36pc leaves #I - 1.5" -[FL-04CA-111] with my handmade flowers. For the solid roses I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone die by Sizzix. The other blue flowers were done with the Spellbinders Grand Peony die. I layered them then topped them with Zva Creative large Pearl brads. Pearl Brads (1/2")[BRBK-02CA-103]
The Zva Creative white flowers are 2.5" Dual- Flowers - White & Dusky Pink -[FL-04CA-128].
The pretty little butterflies are from the Take Flight set from Technique Tuesday. I stamped them on white card stock, cut them out and colored them with Zig Markers, then covered them with Rock Candy Stickles.
This is just another closeup of the corner cluster of flowers and leaves.
