A Special Moment

This photo is of my beautiful mother. She was 17 when it was
taken at my Grandfathers home. He had a wonderful garden and
Mum looked a picture in it. 

I have entered this LO in the photo challenge with Narelle at 
and also in the word challenge at

I have used quite a mix of things to complete this LO and it was
a lot of fun bringing them all together then sitting back and
looking at the end result. 

The flowers I have used are Bo Bunny Blooms - Harvest Orange,
Natural Earth, Clover and Harvest Orange Daisy.  They are very
beautiful flowers. I used florist wirewhich I twisted around a thin 
pencil and placed it coming out from behind the flowers. The vine
is from Scrap FX.

The stunning lamp post is from Twiddleybitz and I colored it with
a green Copic (YG67) pen. I then used a Copic blender pen to give 
it a little of an aged look. Each of the chipees on the layout I colored
in the same way. I used a white card stock and sprayed it with a Kazaz
black Smooch Spritz.

I have placed this layout in the photo challenge with Narelle at 
The other challenge is a word challenge at Bird Is A Word

In this photo you get to see more of the beautiful Bo Bunny flowers 
and also Bo Bunny Lace - Natural Earth. The hanging sign is from 
no other than Dusty Attic, which I have placed a little bit of journal
work on it and the rest is hidden journal on the back. The skeleton 
leaves I have used are from Cre8tive. The patterned papers are from
Kaiser Craft - 75 cents. 

Check out this photo. Bo Bunny Flowers and the grey  flower with
the lovely trinkets coming from it is from Prima. This is a better pic
of the lace from Bo Bunny, lovely all the way. 

This is my final photo of this LO. I have taken this one so as you
can see the lamp post better. I have wrapped a Prima Vine Flower 
around it.The other things in the photo's I have used are, Kaiser Craft 
Floral Delight letter and also their Timeless/Treasures Rub Ons. The
rub ons are the gorgeous birds are the rub ons, which I rubbed onto
white card stock and cut out.
