Role models

I am very lucky that I have such a wonderful mum and also a fantastic aunt, both of them are great positive role models and women to be cherished. I used my Gottacraft Kit containing Crate Paper's Farmhouse range and followed the Scrapology challenge requirements for September to make this LO about them. This photo is one I have inherited from my Gramps and I was so pleased to have a nice picture of them together and a reason to use the "Sisters" sticker in my kit as I have no sister and only one daughter so my mum and aunt were the obvious first choice :)

I embossed the vertical strip of paper and lightly sanded the raised embossing to distress it and the horizontal paper was punched and inked. I used a lot of hand cutting again all the little flowers were cut from one of the papers and I used a self cover button covered with the green leaf paper and one of my hand made crochet flowers.
Thanks for popping by hope you like my LO and apologies if I haven't commented on your blog recently I have been a bit awol.
