Frosted Designs #37 'Songbird'

Good morning!!!

I loved this week's sketch from my blog friend Jenny :0) She is such a talented lady and has a very distinctive style - I can spot one of her layouts at 20 paces!! So in homage to her style I have matted some of my pieces (not in black, as she does, but in kraft)

Here is her lovely sketch:

and here is my take with some old photos of my Nana ....I have committed the cardinal sin of scrapping and used originals :0/ but there were loads of them just thrown into an old shoebox (cliched I know!) and as no-one else was cherishing them I thought it would be ok!!!! ????

I have titled it Songbird for two reasons...1. My Nana loved music, all music! She used to sing when she was younger and always played the piano. 2. I love the words in Fleetwood Mac's song and they remind me of my Nana. I have used my favourites on this layout MME, October Afternoon and GCD Studios :0)

I made a pocket for my journalling using a piece of OA Farmhouse and some kraft paper
Thanks so much for popping in, have a wonderful day :0)

  1. I LOVE this! the vintage feel is just beautiful, love that music background paper, very nice layout!!

  2. Beautiful!!! I REALLY love this layout! Those photos are fabulous too! You have scrapped them so well! I wouldn't worry about using the originals - I think they would much prefer to be displayed like that than in a old shoebox! :D

  3. Gorgeous, Ali!! Love how you have showcased these beautiful photos!! Love the paper you used and how you embellished! Oh, and the matting!! ;)

    Thank you so much for the sweet words!! You're too kind! :)

  4. Ali, I LOVE this layout so much. It's beautiful and I just love the soft, classy and elegant feeling of it. I adore those photo strips too. Just gorgeous. Tenny :D
