Lasting Memories Ch 57 - Use Frames & Flowers


Hello and Good morning!!  Today for Lasting Memories Ch 57, it's all about using FRAMES and FLOWERS.  Easy Peasy... and as I have shown, can be interpreted any way you like.  The flowers are obvious, but for the "Frame" part, I chose to showcase the whole layout by adding the paper strips around.  When I mat photos onto cardstock, that is my 'base" for a frame, and here I simply added photo corner punches to highlight and give it an all around finished, framed look.
I just love these pics of my daughter.  She is just 4 1/2 here and was HAPPY to smile for the camera for me this day. 
Brought a tear to my eye late last night as I was putting the finishing touches on.  Do any of you do that??  Get all emotional when scrappin'??  Would love to hear that I am not the only one.  :-) 

Come on out and join us for LMCH 57!  Be sure to link up before Sat Oct 1 at 9pm EST for your chance at being Featured or being Top 3!! Go check out what the talented DT has to show you.  Love seeing all the different ideas!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
