"Forget me not" - Green Tara & OUAS!!!

"Forget me not"

Hello my lovely friends!!xx

Today I am sharing a special layout with you which is a tribute to my grandmother who is in heaven.
My composition and theme are based on the inspirational challenge by my sweet talented friend Nadia Cannizzo for Once Upon a Sketch!!

I have used many Green Tara amazing products (what else could I use for a special page??)
In the cluster below you can see a latte heirloom flower in the center and around it there are some cherry blossoms in blue, white & brown roses and a white lace flower!

The magnificent aqua damask is one of my favorites along with cherry blossoms in blue and creme, white paper flowers which I have painted, misted and stamped on, natural skeleton leaves and beautiful lace on the right!!

You can also see a a few beautiful clock pieces which are Scrapmatts!!!

"Guest book"

In Greece, as we are Orthodox Christians, we have many Christenings during summer so we use guest books at the Church so people can write their wishes for the baby!!

The cover is FULL of Green Tara goodies!!!

On the spine of the album I have attached some pleated organza ribbon and lace ribbon!

In the picture below you can see a dark rose rosette, a cute little pink butterflypaper flowers which I have stamped on, a pink rose, a small piece from the gorgeous diamante trim and a lace flower!
I have also placed a mauve lace ribbon vertically!

This turquoise tutu flower was just the right color for the cover paper! I have also used a pink lace flower and a white lace flower.

I hope you have enjoyed my post!!!
I will share a step by step on how I made this layout in a few days!!!
