FOREVER BLESSED - Simple Stories

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today bringing you some inspiration with the newest Simple Stories collection, ANCESTRY.   This collection is just perfect to document your family, past and present.  As soon as the collection arrived, I knew that this would be the perfect collection to document my grandparents.   They are no longer with us, but we owe them our lives -we ended their eulogies with, "We are who we are because of them.  They built US".  So, I just loved putting this page together...

 I started my page with a large cut file from Handipaper  - the design of the flowers reminded me of the ones in the collection-.  I cut the file three times from white cardstock, and stacked them together to create a dimensional diecut.  I backed the empty spaces with papers from the collection.

The Timeless Treasure paper was the perfect background for my page ( I love the house sketch on the background); however I added a  bit of paint to the page, just to have a bit more white space for the pictures and title.  

I used elements from the sticker sheets, tablet, Bits and Pieces, layered stickers to create clusters at the top left corner of the layout, and left of the picture.  I mad sure to frame the photos by layering them with cards and papers from the collection.

Since the cut file has a large part of the title in the design; all  I needed was the foam adhesive at the bottom right corner of the picture to complete the page.

I love how this page came together.  It is a truly fitting page about my Papacitos.   Be sure to check the ANCESTRY Collection , you are going to love it all!
