It is a wet and miserable day today in Sydney - can't complain as it is the first rain for a long time. I can feel my garden soaking it up. So today I did some scrapbooking. Here is a layout from our holiday in Hawaii, last December. Unfortunately, due to the overcast weather the photos are not very clear. The papers and embellishments are from Basic Grey Soleil collection.

This layout was for a challenge over at Scrapbook Challenges to creatively frame a photograph. I went to my stash and endeavoured to find embellishments that reflect some of the details of the photograph. I used Graphic 45 paper and inked the edges with Tim Holtz tattered rose Distress Ink, the paper matting the photo was first distressed and then inked. The flowers for the bouquets, the lace doilies (again inked with tattered rose) represent the veil my mother is wearing, the pearls for the beautiful covered buttons on their dresses, bows for the flowergirls hair-ribbons and on the horseshoe my mother is carrying. Heidi Swapp invisible chipboard shapes coloured with tattered rose for the heart and the bird. Finally a tag with ribbon hatpin and journalling tucked into top left completes the layout.
Mother's Day is on Sunday here in Australia and I hope that you make many or remember important people on the day.
My mother passed away at a fairly young age and it was very special to me to complete this layout.
Thank you for sharing with me. Margaret

|For Scrapbook Challenge - Tabitha's Colour Challange|
I used a mask and then Cocoa Glimmer Mist to give the illusion of leaves and a few stickers from my stash complete the layout. As the red sticker says "Wherever you are ENJOY". Enjoy today wherever you are.

I used my Cuttlebug and cut out the bottom vase shape in silver glitter paper (it does not show up clearly in the photo) and used brown cardstock for the filigree overlay and a piece of Kaisercraft paper cut out strategically at a spray of flowers.
I gave this card to my cousin and her new husband for their holiday - congratulations to Sandra and Peter.
