Precious Moments ~ Scrap Africa

Hello everyone! I am happy to share with you my layout today and this is my first submission for Scrap Africa. I have always been meaning to partake in this challenge blog for so many times but I never get close enough; well not until yesterday when I read a post in blogger dashboard about Scrap Africa that tempted me to have a see myself. The sketch by Denise van Deventer is what attracted me to give it a go eventually {thanks Denise, your sketch is so lovely}.

And here is my layout of my dear beloved Mother in her younger days. She was 28 years old, married with six children (two of them met the creator when they were very young yet Mom handled it pretty well). I love this photograph of Mom. It was very common to take this kind of photograph at the shop in those days. Mom still keeps the dress she wears which I have worn several times. I know my Mother will be very happy when I present this layout to her some day soon.

Supplies: patterned papers (Imaginations, Graphic 45), Kaisercraft ink pad/rub on, Tim Holtz distress ink, Martha Stewart border punch, gesso, modeling paste and others from my stash
