You and me - January 2014

These photos of my sister and I have been just waiting to be scrapped since January, 2014. It was her birthday and we went out to dinner at a local restaurant.  Every time I picked them up thinking "I will get them on a layout today" it just did not work.  I think I was put off by the colours, and all softness of the photos. Today, was the day I did something about them.

I have combined two challenges.  The first was this sketch from The Memory Nest

The second is a challenge at Soul Scrappers and it uses the Tic Tac Toe format

I went for the three running down the right hand side.   The something old was the flower cluster that I have had in my stash for years - I think it was originally intended for me to make into a brooch but that never happened!  The spray I used was Glimmer Mist Forest Green, and if I am honest I have also had this for many years ever since Glimmer Mist was the "in" product.  I also sprayed the mist onto the flower so that it would blend in with the papers.   The remaining products are all Stampin' Up! including the circle mask/template.
Photos scrapped - tick.
Thanks for looking, Margaret.
