Great Grandma's Steps

I'm back with my third project for Scraps of Elegance with their beautiful June Kit, "Birds of a Feather".

My boys in 2008

Main Kit

Elements Add-on

Floral Add-on
Patterned Paper Add-on

I used the "Love" paper from BoBunny's Serendipity collection that is included in the kit as the background.  The greens and blues go nicely with the photo of my boys when they were younger. I did some punching around the edges to add interest.  I used a second sheet of it from the Patterned Paper Add-on  to die-cut the rectangular pieces layered under the sides of the photo.

The green of the kit's "Delightful" paper from BoBunny's Aryia's Garden matched perfectly with the the background so I used it under the punched edges, to die-cut leaves and make some little layered die-cut flowers.

These are the dies and punch I used:

Romantic Rectangles
Cheery Lynn Designs
Canadian Kaleidoscope Tiny Doily

Build a Flower #1
Memory Box
Fresh Foliage

Flourish #13
EK Success

The mat under the photo and the brown leaves were die cut from kraft paper and the little doily from cream cardstock from my stash.  The white and brown flowers, the coconut buttons and chipboard border under the photo were also from my stash.

Dusty Attic
Fancy Trim #5

All the other embellishments were from the kit and add-ons.  I love all the coordinating chipboard and die-cut pieces with the green butterflies.

Thank you so much for taking a look today!
