Hello everyone! I've been making projects left and right! I'm sure it's because I'm at home recovering from surgery and I can't do much else (who's complaining?). But to be honest I can't milk it much longer because I'm feeling quite well right now. I'm about 80% which is good enough to retain my normal daily duties. So to squeeze every last drop out of this R&R I've been practically living in my scrap room! HAHA!
So I've decided to start a scrapbook about my Dad's parents and give it to him for fathers day. They've both passed away but we have a very fun history. My Dad is 100% Portuguese and we've been digging and digging for any family heritage we can find. But that being said, my grandparents were 100% American. My grandfather served in the military and Nana was by his side from day 1. I have had this picture of them in a frame for a while and I LOVE it, so I decided to scan it and make a copy and a scrapbook page for it. Here's what came out of it!
I made the flowers out of the Flower Shoppe cartridge. The leaves were from a pack I got at Michaels, but I forget the brand. I twisted the twine into a circle and adhered them with a Zot Dot. I just started using those and have found them quite handy!
I stamped their names and the frame was a CTMH embellishment that I've had forever!
I distressed all the paper with CTMH "Chocolate" Ink.
I have a little set of pearls from Recollections that I scattered across my layout.
The sentiment was "The good Old Days" was a SEI rub on.
And this is my photo. These are my amazing grandparents. My grandpa (Avo in portuguese) and my Nana, 3 months pregnant with her first child, my Aunt and my Dad's big sister. :)
