1951

Hi everybody from a much cooler Perth this time!  I am so grateful for this weather after it being very hot for a couple of days.  I must admit that it seems so petty to worry about the heat when people a little further down south in Margaret River have lost their homes due to a devestating fire. My heart goes out to everybody affected by this tragedy. :(
I just want to share a layout I've done using the gorgeous Kaisercraft 'Madame Boutique' collection. I thought it was perfect for this pic of my mum and her best friend taken in 1951. They were students and only 19 years old at the time. :) I've enterd this into Ant's challenge for Scrapbooking Top 50's November CC. The criteria was to create a 'fashion themed' layout.
I have used Kaisercraft paper blooms and mini paper blooms as well as Prima flowers and Green Tara mini roses. The wooden leaves and lace (for the bow) are from Kaisercraft too.
 I've threaded grosgrain ribbon through the holes of the lace die cut. The doilies are from my stash and the I've used some of the collectables for this range to 'frame' the photo.
Thank you so much to everyone who sent get well wishes to my DS. He is doing so much better now and he can at least eat the same food as us again, instead of having everything liquidised.
Thats all for today. Thank you for visiting and I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Until next time!
