My Love

For my Giveaway press here

Here is a layout I made for the Bo Bunny  Layout Challenge Friday. The challenge is to use circles on the page. I used many large circles and doilies underneath the picture and some flowers and gems that were shaped like a circle. The sketch I used was from Creative Scrappers Sketch # 185. I inverted the sketch 180 degrees like a mirror so the DA chipboard would fit the layout. I love this piece of chipboard because it has a shadow. I sprayed the shadow piece in black and painted the top piece in white. I used the Bo Bunny Enchanted paper line. How gorgeous are they? I love the black and white. Its so elegant.  I used a picture of my husband and I at his brother's wedding this past summer. Formal pictures go so elegantly with these papers. Finally I used a Prima transparency frame with lots of flourishes and the title "My Love" on it. I painted the back around the frame with white gesso to make the printed frame stand out.
I especially wanted to apologise for the blurriness of the pictures because I had to photograph them at night. I haven't been home during the day because my Grandmother passed away this week (may she rest in peace). I did not want to post the bad news first because I wasn't even sure I was going to post them at all. We were very close and although what I'm writing seems short, I'm just keeping my emotions private. 
On another note, we are going on holidays on Friday and when I come back I'm planning to make a layout about my grandmother and me of a picture I took a month before she passed.
I have all my other DT posts scheduled but I will be signing off for a couple of weeks as of Friday. I wish you all Happy Holidays no matter what you celebrate. May you have love, happiness, health and peace in your hearts.

Happy Holidays

Firstly, thanks for 'paying it forward' with your giveaway. I've joined, so you're another one closer to that magic 100; secondly, this LO is GORGEOUS, has a real sophistication about it; thirdly, Grandmothers are such special people - the more you share with them, the harder it is... so my thoughts go out to you [been there myself]; fourthly, have a good holiday:):)

Love your LO - wonderful take on the sketch. So sorry for your loss, I lost my Grandmother last year and I still miss her so very much! I am sure you cherish every memory with her - this will see you thru.
