Great Grandma

I created this VERY special sepia tone lay out for our new Grandson. This is his Great Grandmother holding him and you can see, she is filled with lots of love and pride. I was inspired to alter the color photo when I found this pretty left over piece of lace with hearts on it which I had originally cut from an old t-shirt. The paper is from DCWV baby boy collection and the LOVE is a digi designed by Linda Tieu. I colored it with my Promarkers and added some drawn in hearts. I embellished the oval frame with brown and tan Decorating Chalk  as well as pearls and  metal embellishments. I love the beaded stick pin layered on vellum. The letters (GREAT) were from "Hot Off The Press, Heritage collection".

Thanks for taking the time to share in this special moment.
