A scrap page for Grace.

Morning everyone!

I have had a busy couple of days trying to work out a lovely scrap page for my mum to give to her friend Carolyn. This is Grace.
Grace sadly passed away in january after getting meningitis. My mum tells me Grace was always such a happy,smiley girl and she loved pink, so when mum gave me this photograph to work on I wanted to make it a happy page.
My mum also wanted some hearts on there to so this is where I ended up.
The heart around Grace and the letters for her name are cut with glittery pink adhesive paper its yummy and cuts beautifully in my cricut.
I used some little beads to glitz up my doily hearts martha punched strip (....and yup, it took me ages to get them all on!!!! lol!!!!!)
The little ripped bit on the top left is a little trick taught to me by my friend Chris ( she s a lot better at it than me!!!!) and its so addictive as it just makes a lovely feature on a page/card. I popped some eyelets in near the end of the tear to make it look like it was being held together by them and the black hemp thread.
The little elephant charm is there for never forgetting Grace and it had such a pretty little heart on it too, it just seemed to want to sit there.
I made myself some flowers with my boho flowers punch and some fronds with my martha punch to add a little something to the heart surrounding Grace.
I hope Carolyn likes this. I actually felt a little sad making this when this beautiful, happy girl kept smiling at me and then I remembered she had gone.

This creation used:
Papermania paper from my stash!
martha stewart doily hearts and frond punches.
hobbycraft adhesive glitter paper in Pink.
tiny beads.
SU boho flowers punch.
Making memories clear sticker from my stash!
elephant charm.
My magnolia swirl stamp just gently on the photo.

Well, I must get on. I have oodles of housework I must sort and a dog that needs walking!! If I get all that sorted this morning I will be able to craft away tonight!!!
Hope you all have wonderful saturdays!!
Hugs Lou xxxxx
