HOPE

This is a layout I have made for Challenge # 13
over at My Mind's Eye.....



Here is the sketch for the challenge and
we were to use the word 'Hope'.....



I have used the MME 'Life Stories' Collection -
Pink Damask,
Roses and
Tiny Red Flowers,
and the Life Stories Accessory Sheet # 2.....


I found this verse on the Net, author unknown,
and it fits what I am trying to
convey to my Granddaughters perfectly....


Bazzill cardstock, Prima flowers
and some lace complete the page.....



Delighted with the finished page....



Now to a couple of awards.....
Both from my very good blogging buddy Fern....



Thank you so much Fern.
You should head over to Fern's blog
- she does amazing things with paper,
I love her work, and you will too,
she makes amazing layouts -
Fern, you ROCK.....



Now, I am going to pass these two awards
over to a very special team.....
The girls at SOUS - Stuck on U Sketches.....

Sandi Clarkson
Leah Schaeffer
Nanne Harry
Sandy Windsor
This Design Team are the best on the Net....
Every week they bring amazing inspiration
to us scrappers who need a little mojo boost,
and I for one totally appreciate
their wonderful work....
Sadly, however, Sandy Windsor has decided
to stand down from the team,
family life takes over, as it should,
she will be missed -
good luck in all you do Sandy....
So, I give these two awards to - SOUS.....
Hugs
Jane xx

Holy Cow Jane! The circle (antique rose) layout is just stunning!!! I love the lace positioned to look like a huge doily (or at least, that's my assumption!). The papers are beautiful to be sure! This layout is amazing. Outstanding!
