Lost Loves

Today I have a LO made with the new Bo Bunny Enchanted Papers- I love how the black 
and white let me stack layer upon layer and they all melded together. 
I have used an OLD photo of my Daddy and my Grandmother, both of whom are no longer with us.
Here is my LO
Aren't these papers beautiful???? I really wanted to have some space 
between the layers, so I used foam tape to separate them all.
My embellishments are from Maya Road, May Arts. Martha Stewart crafts, Prima
and some random items from my stash.
I fussy cut one sheet to make a frame, rolling the edges back from the
center for added texture and dimension.
Here is a closer look at how much layering there is - used a lot of foam dots!

I have used the sketch from over at Stuck On U Sketches  which perfectly
fit the circle frame I wanted to cut out.
I only had one photo, as there just aren't that many of my Daddy when he was a little boy. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Veteran's Day!!!
 As a retired Marine Corps wife, I know how much work it is to serve your country.
Everyone who does deserves special thanks.
