' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Make a wish

Make a wish

My method of scrapbooking is so slow I haven't done much recently and I am glad I finally managed one layout to add to my Vintage album.

If you want to read how I made it please go by the Craft Barn blog where I have written a step by step. I will share here some of the ideas behind my choices.

The photo is one of the rare photos we have of a great aunt. The story goes that she was a seamstress and this influenced my choice of paper and embellishments (buttons, lace, fabric, thread etc...) but was a frustrated actress. I believe this photo was taken on the occasion of a village play and is the only one where my great aunt shows her fun side.

I don't often do single pages layout as I have too many pictures but she deserved a full page to herself, her 5 minutes of fame at last...
Thanks for coming by,

I am entering the Craft Stamper TIMI challenge.

  3. il y a très très longtemps que je n'ai fait de page....la tienne en style héritage est très belle. la meilleure façon de garder précieusement son passé.

  4. C'est magnifique.... !!!!!
    Une superbe page héritage, comme dit Sylvie.
    Je devrais en refaire moi aussi... au moins de temps en temps, et peut-être dans mon livre d'AJ altéré.
    Tu m'inspires copinette ! :-) Bises.
