It's been awhile since I posted. Lost in my Family Tree! This photo was given to me by a cousin who I met on the internet a few years back. This is his grandmother, Phoebe (Chant) Newton, and his 2 uncles Frank & Reginald. Phoebe's brother George Chant, was my grandfather; dad's father. I posted George and Dorothy's wedding day layout a few weeks back, which you can see HERE. I'm also posting my heritage pages in a slideshow on my sidebar.
This was great fun to put together. The papers are from K&Company Julianne 12x12 pad set. The ornamental fence die cut is Die-Versions (love this!). The birdcage on the right is Tim Holtz from the Artful Flight stamp set and the round cage is from Kaisercraft Le Chateau stamp set. I stamped them both on the same floral background paper; glued onto Grungepaper; cut out and glued on to the page.
The birds are from the Clear Art Stamps set, Bird Notes. Butterflies, bee and white flowers are from K&Company Tim Coffey Garden White Floral Dimensional Stickers. The big flower and smaller one on top of it, was cut from a page from the Julianne set and layered.
Charms are from Michaels. I also cut the background out of the photo and glued them onto Grungepaper to make them stand out a bit. The beautiful button is from a co-worker. She gave some of her mother's buttons. I added bling to the middle of it.
Martha Stewart "Punch Around the Corner" - Cherish set was used on the floral paper. Journaling was done on a journal stamp that I stamped onto vellum with Stazon Jet Black ink.
