Pose - WIP October Kit

Last month, we went to a family reunion, and on the way out of my cousin's garden, my 92-year-old Gram stopped at a hibiscus tree and asked us to take a picture of her. Gram loves gardens and even more than flowers, she loves to pose for pictures! We have a huge batch of pictures of Gram over the years posing in all sorts of sassy poses. It makes me smile to see that she hasn't lost her desire to be in front of the camera!

She pulled that giant hibiscus flower down near her ear and smiled for the camera. I thought the picture was perfect to use with some of the pretty papers that came in the October Work in Progress kit, which featured some papers from Crate Paper's Farmhouse collection and Jillibean Soup's Sweet & Sour Soup collection.


Here are a few closeups. I cut those flowers from a Crate Paper print and added Stickles to give them some pizzazz and popped on some pearls for dimension.


The frame was the perimeter of a Jillibean Soup paper. I cut the center out. That green frame beneath the photo is a journaling card.


The title letters are from that paper I cut the above frame out of, and the "sweet clover honey" is cut from a sheet of similar labels on a Crate Paper patterned paper.


Thank you for stopping by my blog to read about my layout today!

What a lovely photo of your gran! I had to smile though, because while my two grandmothers passed many years ago, my husband's gran (an absolute sweetie) also loves to pose for photos and she too has some sassy poses...it's too cute. Your layout is beautiful..those title tiles look fab, love the large doilie, you've done a superb job of giving some pizzazz to your fussy cut flowers...they look so pretty. Love the colours and the way you've framed the photo.
I've heard that you working on your own new site..can't wait for it to go live and to check it out. :)
Have a stunning weekend!
