SCRAPBOOKING FOR GRANDMA
Scrapbooking for grandma is a pastime which can only create pleasure and gratitude for the grandmother in question. In fact, it is likely to give you great pleasure too.
With this layout, I wanted to celebrate what it means to be this figure within a family, by featuring my mother and indeed my mother-in-law in the very act of 'being grandmothers!'
BACKGROUND PAPERS TO SET A MOOD
I found this background paper in a 'Clover Heritage Page Kit', and thought it had just the right blend of feminity and formality. The photo matting paper is another offering from the same page kit.
EMBELLISHMENTS FROM YESTERYEAR
I looked around for embellishments to enhance this layout and eventually found some lovely 'Royal E-Z' rub-on transfers from Royal and Langnickel Brush Manufacturing in Indiana. These gave the exact images that I was looking for - old dolls, sepia baby photos and that wonderful old pram! How did people ever get those round stores?!
SOME OTHER MATERIALS USED
I wanted to use a bit of 3D embellishment and I felt ribbon would be in keeping with the theme. I found some with the lilac, pale blue and green which feature in the papers used and also in the photos. This particular ribbon came from Scrappy Do's. The purple cardstock is from Papermania and the lettering is by 'Colorbok.'
