Truly Lucky Layout - The Scrapbook Store and Once Upon A Sketch

 ..and now a pink version of Shabbylicious, by FabScraps for The Scrapbook Store this month.  A background full of texture, including the Chicken Wire die from CLD's... each little joining section has a tiny pearl bead.  I used a piece of cardboard from the packaging of a dinner set.  The cardboard is gorgeous and soft and easy to rip and manipulate.

Lindy's Stamp Gang Mists were used to colour the background. 

The vintage lace leaves, have been edged in Victorian Velvet Distress Ink - so pretty. 

This month, I have joined in the Once Upon a Sketch, Challenge.  The topic is 'Lucky', with a lovely sketch by Nadia, seen below.  You can find all the challenge details 'HERE'.  
 
The photograph is of my daughter Amanda - another 'selfie' (I love me) taken on her mobile phone... gotta love her!!!  It is a good way for me to get photographs of her, I just pinch them off Facebook! LOL Amanda is a beautiful, young woman, both inside and out... and she is the Mother of my first Grandson.  We speak 'daily' and when I say daily .... its more like several times a day. She has the warmest heart, and would reach out to help anyone, whether she knows them or not.  I'm very proud to call her not only my daughter, but also my best friend.  I am truly lucky to have such a precious, loving daughter...and I miss her terribly.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for calling by for a visit.
