Two days in a row ...

Good Wednesday Morning!! I'm back again (two days in a row ...) with another page for my Gram's album. I'm so glad I had this past weekend to finish a few pages for her album, which will be at her service this Saturday. I used Creative Scrappers logo as a base for my layout!

I love most things vintage. I would say my scrapbooking style leans to the vintage side. I adore older photos. They have always been dear to me, even before my Gram's passing. On this layout I incorporated modeling paste through a stencil as part of the background. My circle base is an 8.0" doily which I then built on. I did tons of distressing and added gesso to the distressed edges ...

I have to say ...photographing projects in New England is the most challenging part of scrapbooking!!! Thanks for all your lovely thoughts about my Gram - she was truely amazing!
