Cherish the Memories

Afternoon all

Using this months Counterfeit Kit again I made the layout below for the March week 3 sketch challenge over on UKS. 

These photos are very special to me because neither my Dad or my gorgeous niece are around any more. Sadly my Dad passed away in 1979, just 5 years after this photo was taken and my dear niece died when she was 28. Tragically she took her life while suffering from post natal depression. As a warning to all..never under estimate the effects of PND!

However, I have been wanting to scrap these pictures for a while, but I needed just the right inspiration, so I used Barbaras challenge to scrap 'Good Times' as the excuse I needed.

I used a sketch from Stuck?! Blogspot as my inspiration. 

I cut the title with my Slice, layered the papers and cut a die flourish and layered them on top of the laser cut doily tucked behind the photo mat. 

I then punched the butterflies from some painted paper with doilies stuck over them and added bling for their bodies. 



To finish it off I doodled with a silver pen and added a double heart embellishment, silk flower and some tiny sparkles. 

Thanks for popping by.... do let me know what you think!
