Babushka Page for Miracles Momma Designs

Was sorting through another bunch of Peru photos and came across this photo of my Mom taken on the very last day. Part of the tour took us to a very high end store and I remember being back on the bus when my parents returned with their hat purchase. My Mom was VERY pleased with herself and the ladies on the bus were happy for her. Of course there is a story behind this hat. A story that ties into my very existence...
But we can save that for Story Telling Sunday! Happens to be just around the corner, so you won't have to wait long!

Thanks for the terrific sketch to use Heather from over at Miracles Momma Designs! Really digging the scallop. I have a special piece of paper I keep in my stash and trace when I wish to have something nice and scallopy.

Here is a close up of my flower cluster. Was trying to emulate my very flowery Glitz Design paper. You can also see the new snow covering my's pretty but I am ready for some real flowers! ;-) Check out the little metal antique pieces I used on the corners. Found those on a frame in the Second Hand store and grabbed it just for the gold metal pieces!

And here is a sideways shot of my page and yes, the snow is actually pretty....

And one final photo of my title. Love how those turned out. Put a bunch of alcohol ink on them while they were on the page and then covered them with some glittery stickles. Reminds me of tie alcohol ink! 

Happy Thursday and if you get a chance, play along with her awesome sketch!
