A Pretty, Girly LO for a Change!
I don't often get to do "pretty" LOs with the lack of girls in our family so I was really pleased to be able to do this one of my cousin's wife - I was a bridesmaid at their wedding in 1964.
I took the photo when Dad and I met up with them (they collected us as Dad no longer has a car) and Dad's sister, my Auntie Grace.
I've had the paper for ages too - Basic Grey "Gypsy" and "Romani" - why do I insist on buying pretty papers when I rarely get to use them? I hear you ask. Well... because they are pretty and I can take them out and stroke them!
The title is Romani mini monograms (I didn't buy full sets of these papers just odd sheets that I couldn't resist). Large flower is Prima and the brads, buttons and gromlet etc are from my stash.
This was Sketch #3 from the Birthday Bash on Let's Capture These Sketches. The added challenge was to use a paperclip as an embellishment. I did have some larger ones but the colours didn't match.
