CHALLENGE YOUrself #56 Mother and Daughter.

Hello there,
How is your day going? Good I hope! The cool weather is hanging on here, but there is a forecast of some lovely rain on the weekend, and I pray we get a good drop from the Heavens!!
I am just popping up my layout for this months challenge over at CHALLENGE YOUrself  which is..
to create a Mother-Daughter themed layout.. well each month I tell myself I must join in, but this month I had the perfect photo taken on Mothers day this year of 4 Generations, and I just had to sit and scrap it..  The photo has my Mum, Me, My Daughter and my darling Grand Daughter, so I simply had no excuse for not having a good photo.. so here is my layout, with some closer views..

lots of fussy cutting from Kaisercraft papers layered over a Scrapmatts chipboard frame.

some gauze for softness around the flowers..

and a pretty heart stencil on the side of my page.. from Scrapmatts.

A daughter is..

That is a very special photo and I am so happy I have scrapped it..  The hard part will be to decide whose album it will go into!!!

Thanks CHALLENGE YOUrself for the inspiration this month with your Mother-Daughter challenge..

Thanks for popping by today, thanks so much for the lovely comments too..
Enjoy the rest of your day!

    Hope you get the rain you're hoping for Lizzy!! Our days are very cold too and we have had quite a bit of rain. Just hoping our farmers have had some too.

  6. Well we've had a sunny 20C degrees today - so lovely after a cold, cold Winter. But rain again tomorrow which are farmers are desperate for. Now to your glorious page with it's four generations. That's special and something to be truly celebrated. You may have to make a few more so that everyone has a copy! I've had to do that with some extra special photos. Love the floral wreath and the dangling hearts. Just beautiful.
