Forever by SUE CREASE

I'm here today to share another layout made for The Mad Scrapper Blog  and I have chosen to play along again with the challenge over on the Facebook page for 49 and Market. If you, like me, love everything about them you may like to join in too. Janine is up to date with all available products so you can always top up your stash there. The challenge is made up of an inspirational sketch and a colour to follow too this time around. I will add a list of all supplies and the sketch at the bottom of this page.
I started by taking my sheet of Vintage Artistry Blush - Soaring and trimming it down to 11.5" and then I gutted out the centre to give me a 8 inch square. I took a white card and trimmed it down to 10.5" and added it to a piece of green. I decided to add some stencilling to the white using a distress ink but I wasn't happy so I went over with some crackle paste, I also stitched around the edge with some grey floss. When dry I mounted it on to the B side of the Blush paper giving me a nice border of pink.
The 8 inch square I matted on to grey card but not before I fussy cut the butterfly and I also added stencilling to that too. In the photo below you can see the raised wings and a close up of the stitching and strip of lace used.
The layout is of myself and my big sister taken in what I believe is the summer of 1966 before my little sister arrived in December. My nana was a tailoress and so we were very lucky and had almost all our clothes made for us so we were always dressed alike. In this photo we are standing in the garden of my other nana.
As the colour to be used is pink I dragged out lots of  flowers, laser cuts and ephemera from different 49 and Market collections along with a splash of green.
Here you can see some tram tickets used along with flowers and pearls.
And on this photo you can see laser cuts and more flowers. That is me in the scarf!
Another laser cut along with ephemera and enamel dots.
This little butterfly is from the ephemera pack of Sherbet collection.
Another little look at the main cluster showing most elements to the page, including the beautiful lace which is a laser cut too.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I've encouraged you to join in with the challenge. Even if you choose not to, the sketch is useful to have for those No Mojo moments we all suffer with from time to time. Don't forget to pop over to The Mad Scrapper  to see all the amazing collections Janine has for us from lots of different suppliers around the world.
Here is the list of supplies along with the sketch.
