Miss You!

Each month the design team at ScrapGal  participates in a Product Showcase. This month we were given
two Maya Road Medallion flowers and...
two 7 Gypsies tags from this pack. I used my product to create a layout.
For some reason, the tags made me think of my grandma Ruth. It's funny how your mind works sometimes. What triggers thoughts of people. And I have been missing her a lot lately.
So I used the tags for photo mats and the flowers to embellish the tags :) Some crocheted trim added to my tag that I misted and used to journal completed the layout.
Originally it was just going to be an 8 1/2 x11 layout on white cardstock. By sheer chance I placed it on top of this green patterned paper which is actually also from the Crate Paper Snow Day line I've used for my other projects this month. That paper has such a different more elegant feel to it. A happy accident :)

If you would like to see how two of the other design team members used the same product, you can check out this blog post. It is a Mad About Members Monday post, but the design team projects are at the bottom.
Have a great weekend!
