Scrap That Poetry #14 - SPRING

Here is my latest entry for 'Scrap That Poetry'. You can find the challenge here.
I just loved the words in this poem! I thought the BASIC GREY 'Kioshi' range of PPs and stickers were just perfect for this layout.
Thanks for looking.

Kaiser 'Utopia' & Basic Grey 'Sugar Rush'

Here are some of my last holiday layouts before I go back to work next week. They are not for any challenges, I just wanted to do some scrapping for myself.

Here is Holly Dolly with her favourite toy! What a top photo if I do say so myself! You can find the Utopia range here.

This photo was taken about 5 years ago with my 'USA' buddy Big Tone!

"Ice Cream"
This is Vanilla's youngest DD! Isn't she just adorable!

Little Scrapbook Shop Cybercrop Card Sketch Challenge

Here's the sketch. The card also had to feature a quote from 'Alice In Wonderland'.

I saw the tabs as a handle on a mug as soon as I saw the sketch. Maybe I was drinking coffee from my favourite mug, the exact shape, at the time!

Scrap That Poetry - Challenge #13

'An Easter Flower Gift'
Poem by John Greenleaf Whittier
O dearest bloom the seasons know,
Flowers of the Resurrection blow,
Our hope and faith restore;
And through the bitterness of death
And loss and sorrow, breathe a breath
Of life forevermore!
The thought of Love Immortal blends
With fond remembrances of friends;
In you, O sacred flowers,
By human love made doubly sweet,
The heavenly and the earthly meet,
The heart of Christ and ours

I used this poem as the inspiration to scrap this beautiful picture of my sister on her wedding day, almost 17 years ago now. This is the first picture from her wedding that I have scrapped and also my first attempt at a 'shabby chic' style. So I feel like I have met three chaleenges today, not just one!

I must also give credit to my mum who gave me a box of all of her leftover silk ribbon roses! Thanks mum!
