"Granda's Tree" layout

Another of the layouts I made on the November Scrapbooking Retreat!

During one of our trips over to stay with my hubby's family last year we visited his Granny and as it was a beautiful Spring day we were all out in her garden when I snapped this photo of my daughter stood by this beautiful tree. Sadly his Granda had passed a few months before but he loved this tree and tended it carefully for many, many years. We all said how the tree had never looked so good and was in full bloom in his memory! My daughter loved "Great Granda's tree" saying how pretty it was.

Some close ups:

The gorgeous floral paper and the puffy heart stickers are both from Heidi Swapp's Favorite Things Collection. The "Life is Good" card is from Jennifer's "How Refreshing" collection from her "Happy Scatter" Etsy Shop. If you haven't yet had a look in her shop, do pop over as she has some lovely items.

I also added a Basic grey tag, resin flower and stamped some arrows and phrases mixed in with a few phrase stickers!

How is your 2015 crafting going?
I was at my first crop of the year last Saturday and managed to get a couple of layouts finished!!
Thanks for stopping by today.

That a lovely page and a lovely story Sarah.
The pink on the paper really sets off the flowers - isn't that tree a stunner!

I can attest that this layout looks as gorgeous in real life as it does here! It's such a pretty page, I love the floral paper and also the border around the page which helps tone it down. And of course I like seeing my 3x4 card put to good use! x
