My sweet Granny... (Artful Delight)

Hello there! This morning I have a layout to share with you that I made using the June kit from Artful Delight. My mom's birthday is coming up in July and I wanted to make her something special for it. I took out this picture of her and my sweet Granny, who passed away 3 years ago, on a trip they took together to Arizona, and knew it would be just right...


Supplies Used From The Artful Delight June Kit - Lily Bee This & That Paper - Teacup & Brooch; Lily Bee This & That Sticker Sheet (Banner); Prima Mini Roses - Sunrise
Other Supplies Used: Bazzill Dotted Swiss Cardstock - Black Cow; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Blackbird; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Black Soot; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - Loving Words; Fiskars Butterfly Punch; Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch; I-Rock; I-Rock Black Gems

I found a great shadow box frame at Michaels to put it in and I can't wait to give it to her. I'm sure it will make her a little sad at first, but I know she'll treasure it and love it also. :)

So have you gotten your hands on a June kit yet?? If you haven't, you should grab one up while you can...it's amazing!

Oh, and let me share something cool with you. The first embellishment I added to my layout was the flower cluster in the corner. After that, I punched the yellow butterflies to match the yellow of the flowers but I also wanted something green to match the leaves. Well, I don’t have anything the right color in my stash, but realized I had something perfect to use, which was the packaging from the flowers! It’s the exact shade of green that the leaves are and worked great for the smaller butterflies. Pretty neat huh? Just doing my part to recycle, I guess, lol!! ;) Have a great day...

I saw this on Artful Delights blog and had to run over and tell you how much I adore this layout!! I think it's just beautiful and putting it in a shadowbox frame is just gonna make it go over the top and your Mom will be floored! I can't think of a more beautiful or thoughtful gift :) And yayyyyy for you for the green scrapping!! I have been hoarding all of my packaging lately, along with junk mail.....lol. Everyone thinks I'm nuts (which I am!) but I am thinking what a cute mini all that stuff will make :):)

Have a great day!
