Nellie Lynch

I have created this layout using the sketch from CISister's. I have also used this sketch for the monthly sketch challenge on the Paper Paradise Forum.

I am happy with the layout, I just got it finished last night and typical I can't photograph it outside due the horrible rain!!! So I have included two versions to try and get the feel of the page across.

A close up of some of the beads that I have gluded on.

Stitching, tearing, layering and glueing on this page. I have used K&Co papers and embellishments on the page. Some brads, some beautiful crochet lace, inking and that's about it.

If you want to read the jouranaling just click on the pic and it should enlarge it enough for you to read.

What a beautiful page. The beads along the crocheted lace look lovely and I like how you are scrapbooking your family history.
