Doubly Blessed

I made this layout for SIL (Ruth's) birthday instead of a card! Ruth actually started this idea off, and I think its a brill idea!!!!

The Doubly is actually the same colour as the blessed????

I am entering this into the We love flowers challenge - twist - use a flower bigger than the palm of your hand!

The words are all outlined with glitter glue, and the letters are all hand cut!

The flowers over the photo are cut using a craft knife with some glitter glue added, prima flowers with a dab of glitter glue.
Large flower stripped from a bunch, inked with old rose and bronze, both cat's eyes from colorbox. A papermaina blue flower with a prima flower glued in place! makes up the large flower. Every piece of paper and card are inked with bronze cat's eye.
Pretty much everything else is matting and layering!

I may be biased but I think it's lovely.
I am indeed doubly blessed, and even more so since I discoverd scrapbooking, sometimes the memories fade even when you don't want them to but this page will always remind me of that special afternoon.
I am so lucky to have you as my Sister-in-Law.

Love Ruth xxx

LOL, Tracey know what you mean, it's hard to take a photo sometimes, can't wait until we get proper sunshine again, so I can take photos in natural light!


LK and Sam, thank you for your lovely comments.


Ruth, thank you so much for the beautiful comment
