love face

I have been working on my Grandkids scrapbooks. I just love this (engagement ?) picture of my Mom. My Dad who passed away last fall, had a nickname for all of us kids. Most of us were blessed with only one nickname. Mom was the lucky one :) She had many! One of them was "love face".  The caption at the bottom says, "love of the nicknames that Great Grandpa Reilly called Great Grandma."
I just got this August Scrapbook Kit from Artful Delight, in the mail the other day. It felt just like Christmas! I have quite a bit of scrapbook material in my spare room closet but most of it I have had forever. I love the colors. I really love the black embelli's they have in the kit. I would have never chosen black. I usually go with brown but black is a beautiful contrast with the light colors.

                                                                          I used the sketch at Artful Delight:

I traced around a bowl (lol) and cut out 6 circles, randomly punched the edges with a decorative punch, inked the edges in black and then wadded each of them up in my hand. I punched some little flowers and leaves and then added brads.The other embelli's came with my kit. I added 3 little bows that I made with a fork. You can go HERE to see how to make them.
