Scrapbooking | hello Nanny & Gramps

I don't have many photos of my Nanny and Gramps together so when I came across this one I wanted to scrap it straight away.  I have no idea of the date and I'm not fussed either.

I chose to use the one and only patterned paper I allowed myself to buy from the latest Paige Evans collection.  These diamonds remind me of quilting and my Nanny is a quilter (or was when she was able).  I was selective in which diamonds I cut out ignoring the pink ones.  I arranged them in 3 starbursts and added sewing to hold them in place.

The title is an acrylic piece from Colour Cast Designs.  I must have had it for 3 or 4 years?  Crazy hoarder!  The mist in the background is Mint To Be Spritz from Shimmerz.  It's my new favourite but I've said that about all of the other colours too!

As the layout progressed I realised I wanted something over to the left of the page so added a strip of the diamond paper.  This time I couldn't avoid all the pink but I think it works well enough.  The enamel crosses are from various Cocoa Vanilla and 1Canoe2 collections.

Thanks for stopping by!
