Nan's Birthday Present. 96 Yesterday.


It's great to have completed another project.  I have finished a canvas for Nan for her birthday.  Nan turned 96 yesterday.  We will pop down to see her and other family members on the weekend.  The photo on the canvas is of Nan's mum and dad.  I imagine if they were alive now , they would be approximately 116 years old. 

I have decided to enter this into the One Stop Craft challenge blog   (Alter It)

I have used the following products.

Ribbon                           From my stash
Flowers:                         Individual flowers (Prima)  Flowers on a vine  (Prima)
Background Heart:         Websters Pages  Vellum & diecut kit.
Paper:                            Graphic 45  Le Romatique Collection  Loves Labyrinth. (Apricot Rose Paper)
                                      Graphic 45  Baby 2 Brice Collection   Love is blue         (Green small flower)
                                      Graphic 45  Baby 2 Bride Collection   From this momwnt (Pale Apricot rose)
                                      Graphic 45   Green striped paper (not sure of collection)
                                      Kaiser Craft  Empire Collection                                        (blue paper)

I also used a clip on earring, purchased from a second hand store.

The sentiment is from Creative Memories and it reads:

"In every conceivable manner, the family  is link to our past, bridge to our future."

Have a great afternoon.  It is looking a bit stormy this afternoon.
The dog from down the road , has just escaped from her backyard, and is presently paying me a visit.
