Based on my own original "Tania" layout, I've made this for 2 friends, and 9 other friends have made it for themselves in classes I thaught - yet I've never done one of myself.
Attending a Scrapbook Convention earlier in May, my sister-in-law and I took photos of each other dressed up in vintage type garb. Diane Schultz and Aimee Filimoehala (Graphic45) presented one of the classes, and about half the ladies got dressed up to support their theme.
The small photos are of the vintage garb I wore. The jacket was my mom-in-law's, and the brooch (can't see it on the photo), belongs to my mom, so it was a true family affair that day!
Please refer to my Tania page for the meaning behind each type of element. My personal things I chose:
Bible - Love for God and His Word
Cat - my favourite animal (My hubby suggested I put him in the tree)
Purple stoned heart - been through a few troubles the past few years and survived them all
In the shaker box:
Tree - my love of nature, and growth I'm experiencing within myself at the moment
Cross - Christianity
Roses - my favourite flower
Music note - love for music and all sounds of nature
Camera - scrapping opportunities, of course!
The Rhinestones add a bit of sparkle, a reminder of the jewels in my life.
The Fabscraps Rustic Trees paper resemble new growth phases of my life. God works in mysterious ways ... My hubby took me scrapshopping on my birthday, and found this paper by accident. It was meant to be!
