Scattered Pictures.....

Hello Everyone, Happy Saturday to you all, I thought I'd show
you the last card I made, which was yesterday ha ha, (I still
have three months worth to blog OMG)!!!....anyway getting
back to this card. I recently met up with one of my cousin's
daughters, he died when he was only 38 some 23 years ago
and I have not seen her since she was three; to cut a long story
short myself and another cousin sorted through all our old
photo's from our parents and found some fab photos of her
Dad when he was a little boy, her Nan and Grandad who she
never met and her Dads sister (her Auntie) so she has found
a whole new family. My Mum, her Nan's sister, was the youngest
of 11!
I thought I would make her a lovely keepsake wallet card
containing all the photos we found and send it to her.......

Papers are K & Co, distressed with emery board and added
Tim Holtz vintage photo to edges and tags. Printed sentiments
from Computer onto Velum, the tiniest of eyelets I used on
the top tag to secure. Lace was threaded with ribbon and
string of pearl beads. Craft paper punched with Fiskers heart
border punch the butterfly is MS punch....

Flowers from stash, peeled back papers and inserted 'Family'
sentiment, again printed onto velum, distressed cream
card underneath, heart punch from Woodware.
Hope she likes it! TFL Happy Crafting, Sue xx
