Thankful for Family - Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi Everyone,
This week for Cheery Lynn Designs, I have created a layout on my family.  The photograph is of my Mother (right of photograph) with her siblings, and my Grandmother in the middle.  One of my Aunts is missing from the photograph, as she passed away from Breast Cancer at a very young age.  I love this photograph as it is one of the very few I have of all my Aunts and Uncles together.  My family are situated all over Australia, and overseas, so we do not get to see each other often.... but I treasure the memories I do have of them.

This week, I really wanted to showcase how wonderful the Honeycomb Frame die is, a high favourite of mine that I have been wanting to use for some time.  I cut the Honeycomb from chipboard, and spray painted in white, using both the negative and positive pieces of the die in the layout.  I have a feeling this die is going to be used in 'many' upcoming projects, I love it so much!  In Australia, you can purchase the Honeycomb Frame 'HERE' at The Scrapbook Store.
 The Thankful title, is one from the new release, and I added 'for family' using the Delicate Lace Script - both were cut from chipboard, and again spray painted white. 
 A wide range of flowers were assembled using various dies including Build A Flower #2Judy's Blooms, Cheery Blossom, and also the centre from the Manon's Wedding Garland.  A complete list of the dies I used for the foliage are below in the material's list.  The tiny leaves poking from some of the medium sized flowers were created using the Cuties 4 die, they really do make perfect leaves.
 The challenge this week on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog is 'Autumn Colours', do pop on over and view all the details and enter.  You have a chance to win a $20 shopping voucher each week, and only have to use one die on a project to be in the running to win!
 Till next week
Materials Used:
Cuties 4 (B156) Used as Leaves
Bazzill Textured Cardstock
