RA has not met her great grandparents. Cross our fingers and say a prayer that all will be right and in a few weeks the two great grandmothers, one great grandfather, along with great aunt and uncle will be here for Jacob's graduation and to meet little Miss Priss (I have a myriad of cute names for her!). In the meantime we all tell stories of of them. This particular picture is RA napping on a quilt Tabitha's grandmother made for her years ago. I love how the Future is in the Past.
What I Learned
- Try to think outside the box. The "bow" on the bottom left are two crocheted doilies from Prima. I kept trying to layer them with flowers or even lay them by themselves. It just wasn't working for me. I've really been into making hair bows so I decided to add stitching to the layered crocheted pieces and create a "bow" that worked wonderfully. For me it was certainly outside the "box."
- Create my own matching buttons. I think it is wonderful that I can pair up Epiphany Crafts button maker tool with Prima's paper to make a custom button.
- I really want the "feel" of the layout to reflect generations. Using the crochet "bow" and then the crochet flower makes me feel like I'm home again.
- Going back to something clean and simple brings a whole new prospective to my craft.
- FYI: no distressed edges or inky edges! That was a real challenge.
My heart belongs to this little girl.
