It has been a while since I entered a challenge at Stamp-a-Memory but this month's challenge fitted perfectly with the new catalogue release and my favourite new products!! This month the challenge is to scrap a photo that is more than ten years old.

I have scrapped a photo of my paternal grandmother's parents (my great grandparents). The photo was taken in either the 1950s or 1960s (waiting on my mum to confirm the date for me and then I will add it to my page ...I have left a small oval journalling spot for the purpose).

Here is a close look at the bird. I have heat embossed the image several times and then cracked the image. Isn't the crotchet doily pretty. It was an op shop find and I have added some cotton twine as well.

I coloured the chipboard letters with a Bashful Blue marker. I like the suede effect it gives to the letttering.

The stamp set is Nature Walk and the patterned papers are from Botanical Gazette.

Thanks for looking.

Love your layout - the little crochet embellishment was a great find and the bird and cage are just perfect too. Thanks for taking part.
