GCD Studios sponsored a Designer's Showcase at Ideas for Scrapbookers, and was generous enough to send everyone on the design team their Lydia collection to work with. This is one of the projects I made for the showcase. The photo is of my mother's siblings and spouses and I believe the picture was made in the 70s. My mother and a couple of my aunts (her SILs) are the only ones still with us. I added a little painting in the upper right corner. The flowers were hand cut. The butterfly is a MS punch. I added some stitchin around the circle and on the circle (and it was VERY difficult to do left handed!! LOL!). I also used a QK 12" border die for the circle strip at the bottom. These papers are really gorgeous IRL.

(These two layouts I'm posting today are the first layouts that I've scrapped in over 3 months! I felt like I was starting as a new scrapper. It was almost as if everything was new and I had to learn to scrap all over again! Ahhhhhh...but it's a good feeling to be back to scrapping!)
