Here is my interpretation
 of the great sketch
 designed by Sandi

And here is the great sketch

This layout has been created
with only one product - the
 gorgeous "Vintage Beauty" Collection
 from Ruby Rock-It.
An older collection, just waiting
for this stunning photograph
 of middle Granddaughter, Erin

To create the layered effect
 on the flowers and leaves,
 I have just peeled the layers
 of paper apart, completely
 by accident to begin with,
 but, so delighted
 with the effect.

Now, before you head
over to the next Blog on the Hop,
 I have a wee bit of candy of my own.

Just make sure you are
 a follower of my blog,
 and leave me a comment...

Blog Hop finishes at midnight
 on Sunday 3rd March

 and my candy will be posted

Now head on over to Charlotte's Blog

Good Luck
