My Glamorous Gran

Hi Everyone.
I had wanted to do a scrapbook page about my Gran for a long time so the sketch over at Once Upon a Sketch this month was just perfect. I used the Bo Bunny Sophie Collection - mainly the Sophie Frills Diecut and Bouquet papers and then embellished with turquoise trim, purple gem and lots of fussy cutting and matching glitter. I added two sentences of journalling for the challenge but there is a tab with my Gran's name 'Mary' on it to the right of the picture where I've created a secret pocket with lots more journalling and my recollections of our good times together.
Anyway, thanks for looking. Why not pop over to the Once Upon a Sketch site and have a go at their latest challenge.
Best wishes
