This is a two page layout I did featuring my parents and using paper by Echo Park.
This is the left-hand page of the two page layout and I used the sketch from the Unity Stamp Company Challenge. The tape is paper tape by 7 Gypsies. The black cardstock is by WorldWin and the shimmery red cardstock is by The Paper Company and the white is from my stash. I used Adirondack, Staz-On, and Ranger inks. The banners are embossed using Stampendous shabby green embossing powder--love this stuff! The twine is the red shimmer twine from The Twinery. The vellum is from my stash. I used Glossy Accents on the word GaGa, which is what the grandkids all call my Mother. The banner and holly border stamps are from "A Simple Christmas". I used the Marah Johnson "Carnivale" alphabet set again for the word GaGa. The ruler stamp, love them/love her stamp, and the date block are all from the June 2012 SMAK kit. The heart is from "The Time is Now" kit.
This is the right side page. I also heat embossed the banners like I did on the other page. I also heat embossed the journaling spot using the Stampendous shabby green embossing powder. In addition to the 7 gypsies tape, I also used some Tim Holtz tape. The journaling spot stamp and the sentiment on it are from the "Throught All Time" set and the words mother, father, grandmother, and grandfather are from the "Roots and Wings" set.
I'm very blessed with wonderful parents and wanted to do a layout of them this past Christmas. My mother has been battling cancer and just finished radiation treatment on Wednesday for the second metastases. Hopeful that it will stay gone this time. Very thankful for the wonderful doctors and facilities at UT Southwestern.
