This is Helen's 2nd LO using a vintage with its associated story:
'The Christmas collection is just a delight. I love the soft, Eucalyptus greens and the Cranberry reds….they inspired me to scrap a photo of my Father as a baby and journal something about his Mother, my Granny. My Mother always had red roses flowering at Christmas time, so these papers remind me of her too.'
"Christmas Roses" & the extra strip, which was fussy cut to
layer around the photo.
I thought the distressed flourish chipboard worked well with the vintage dress and the circle of crystals enhanced the Christmas wreath.

A beautiful LO & a wonderful memory page - well done Helen. Love the placement of the layered photo balanced by the journaling. The fussy cut flowers are so well done & add a touch of colour to the LO. Thanks you for sharing your family with us in these 2 layouts.
