B 4 blessings.....my 4 boyssss

Tuesday, September 22, 2009


Good evening all, hope this finds you well. This is a picture of my dad and uncle when they were boys. Have been doing some heritage pages lately and having fun with them. The papers are just odds and ends I had about the house....I enjoyed using my Pebbles stencils to add some inking and cut slits in my mat and viola....photo corners that I think fit the essence of this page. You can find the stencils at Your Memories Here....check my right side bar to see what fun Kristina is offering our followers now! I intentionally kept the colors very limited. The flower is once again my GS flower this time 5 layers in 2 1/2 and 2 inches pop dotted then punched and a brad inserted. I used a copy of some newsprint I found online to make the paper for the flowers. I added the mail box and letters to say I miss you Dad....a couple of brads, some tearing, lots of inking and a bit of yellow craft paint. I did some scribbling on the envelopes to add some character...hope you like it!
