My Granny

Last Friday evening, Sandy and Alex hosted a "Write Women Back into History" crop at SCRAP THAT

I had thought about this crop for a couple of weeks. I love themes! They really give me a challenge to focus on something that I might not normally think of.

I settled on doing a layout of my great grandmother, ♥Granny♥. I have very few pictures of her and have never scrapped one.

Here's my granny ~ Mrs. Irene Easley ...

I believe this photo was taken some time in the 80's in Arkansas when she visited my aunt and uncle for Easter. She has a beautiful flower corsage which inspired the paper dahlia (inspired by a great post by Jolene Pienaar), which I adorned with looped pearls, a clear button center, layered with a flower and coral pear accent, a felt swirling stem, and a green organza bow.

I LOVE the antique look of the paper by K&Co. It makes me think of her little old county house in Louisiana.

I repeated the pearls again on the sweet chipboard butterfly and on the bottom of her photo.

The antique lace along the bottom finishes it off, just as I had hoped.

Now I want to scrap my other grandmothers, too! I'll let you know if I do ;)
