Berry71Bleu has a fantastic giveaway this month that I would love to win. Check it out! Her challenge is to create three vintage layouts, so that is what I did. Some of them double as other challenges too. All three layouts are of my grandmother, Eileen, who passed away last November.
Here's the first layout, "Timeless Beauty". It also doubles as a "By the Numbers" challenge on Scrapbook Challenges that required you to use one photo, two colors of cardstock, 2 printed papers, 3 buttons, one window, and any other embellishments/alphas you like. I messed up in that my cardstock isn't true cardstock -- it's more of a two-tone cardstock, but I'm going to submit it anyway. I included the poem The Beauty of a Woman, because my grandmother had such a beautiful heart.
Here's a closer look at the details of this layout.
Here's the next layout, simply titled "Nan":
Here's a closeup of the first page:
And here's a closeup of the second page, which is also loosely based on this week's sketch from Scrapbook Challenges (the sketch follows):
Here's the sketch (I altered it quite a bit):
And here's a detail picture:
Finally, here's the third vintage layout for the Berry71Bleu challenge.
