Circa 1918 with Manor House Flower

Following on from my last post today I am sharing a layout of my grandmother and her brother which includes a Manor House flower. .  As soon as I purchased these papers I knew this was the photo for it and then at the Scrappin Patch Spring Retreat I discovered the Manor House flowers that went perfectly. 

A Dusty Attic signpost and leaf vine were inked with a chalk ink and lettering Prima canvas.  Besides the Manor House large flower are Wild Orchid Flowers.   A Martha Stewart around the page punch was used to create the photo frame.



Another day has flown by.  A friend came over to scrapbook this morning - we managed two wedding cards for her. (I am still getting started - I have a very special card to make  in the next day and think I am procrastinating lol).  However I have installed my new printer today and it took a lot longer than expected and while doing that I got stuck on the old family DVD's - wow did I really look like that in the 80's?  but it also showed how far our property has come since being a paddock in 1985.  Each birthday celebration my father recorded showed a little more progress inside and out. The DVD also refreshed lots of memories and little things we had forgotten about.

Must away and make some scrapping progress.  I hope your week is going well.  Thank you for visiting today.

Bye for now.....
