These are Cec's parents and Silas's grandparents that also live in Sydney. I've never met them but I have to be sure and include pictures of them in the album I'm making of Silas. I have very few pictures, but these two were great. They were taken while they were having a dinner over at their house and enjoying some outside warm weather. I've had this matted grandparents poem from a swap for many years and really didn't know if I would ever use it. I was actually looking for
embellishments to use in my "family" draw of goodies and came across this.
I had already picked out the Make It Monday Sketch #53 at "THE MEMORY NEST" and had paper cut for the strip down the left side to go with the sketch, but then when I saw this poem I knew it would work perfectly, it was even matted with a purple print and yardstick just like Nestor's shirt int he picture. So I just made a thin double mat on my grey patterned paper (to go with the fence in background and siding on house) with purple and grey. I decided to go with no title and just add a wood 'Love" piece for a single embellishment.
Here is the sketch and check out the details here for this challenge at "THE MEMORY NEST"
