Scrapping Slump

Apparently I've been really lacking in posting here on my blog, seems I've been having a bit of scrapping slump. I did manage to get a couple of layouts done. Photo taken of my two older sisters, taken approximately Sept 1950. I was trying to do a technique that Marilyn Rivera does on her layouts distressing by misting with water then folding the paper back. Not quite as pretty as Marilyn does but I tried.
  This next layout took me about a month to finish. I had the background paper with the photo sitting on my craft desk forever, or at least it seemed like forever, lol. The photo is of my granddaughter and her friend just enjoying life. I used the Blue Fern Studios "Montage" collection from Swirlydoos October 2014 "Treasured Yesterday's" kit. I fussy cut the bottom graphic from the "Now & Then" paper and popped it up with foam dots. I used some of my own dyed seam binding for my bows and added some cheese cloth under the photo. Shutters, small heart & chain, Prima wooden flower embellishments from my stash, and a bottle cap that I made myself from some Graphic 45's secret garden papers. I hope you like the layouts and I'd love to hear any comments! TFL!
