This was a a huge challenge for me. I love the look and enjoy the style, but I just don't do it that well. I think this was the most time I've spent on a LO in two years now. These are pics of my husband's great grandmother (center) and his grandmother and her oldest sister (bottom left. I had the perfect pics for this and I've been trying to figure out how I wanted to scrap them, but this challenge gave me all the inspiration I needed. I spent a lot of time distress this LO. Used my scissors and a lot of Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distressing ink (that I misted the paper with H2O after inking to create the yellowing spots). I also hand made all the flowers using my ribbon flower tutorial that I have posted. I just kind of threw on the string on pearls and played with it till I found something that was pleasing to my eyes. Ok here's my LO:
