My Mom Through My Dad's Camera Lens

Happy National Scrapbooking Day! In an effort to work on not being a procrastinator, I decided to get busy and actually complete an entire layout in honr of the day, so here it is.

This is my Mom, Hazel. My dad took this photo in 1952, shortly before they got married. This is my favorite photo of her - she just looks so confident!

I had the half of the round paper left over from the layout I did of Brandy, so I got the idea to make a fan from it. Then I had these new K&Co Madeline papers and elements, so decided I need to go with a vintage look, and what better to go with a vintage look than a vintage photo? So that's how I came up with the idea. Then I just started arranging stuff around until I decided I liked it.

Everything is from K&Co except for the American Crafts round paper that the fan is made from, the flowers (which are all Prima), the ribbon, the Stickles, and the stamped image on the fan which is from Fancy Pants.

I think I might find a couple of stemmed flowers to put up in that top left corner with the tulle sticking out, but otherwise I am happy with my National Scrapbooking Day project.

Thanks for popping in!
