Sharing a Layout of My Mother for Mothers Day

I absolutely loved creating this layout; it is so ‘me’!  The photograph is of my Mum when on holidays in Swan Hill, Victoria in 1995 – at Pioneer Settlement.   The Pioneer Settlement has the most quaintest shops replicating ‘days gone by’ (including the yummiest of boiled sweets shop).  As you can tell by the photograph, there is a shop which specialises in photography and the old dress costumes, with amazing props allowing for a realistic 1800s/early 1900s photographs.  I’ve always wanted to visit again as an adult, and once again have my photo taken… maybe one day!! 
The products used in this layout are:
Background Paper: Kaisercraft Timeless Collection, “Sheet Music”
Guipure Lace:  No brand, purchased at wedding shop in Adelaide, S.A. Hand-dyed by myself
Kaiser Square Rhinestones: Square, “Orange”
Hummingbird/Butterfly/Bee charms 
Prima Flowers: “Angelous – bethor”, “Faience – Emily” & “Rose Leaves”
Hand-made flowers, made by Myself.
Tim Holtz: “Distress Ink – Walnut”
Kaiser: “Rhinestone Strips – Silver”
Sassafras: “Chocolate Glitter Alpha”

I hope Mothers Day is a special one for all …..
