4 Generations

I'm going to enter this layout that is so special to me in 3 different challenges.
This is a picture we took this Sunday while visiting my Dad at his home, along with my daughter and her 3 1/2 week old little girl.   So we had 4 generations together.   Not a lot of people are that blessed to have everyone together, but I'm so glad I am.

I started off being inspired by the Feb. 15th sketch at   "LET'S GET SKETCHY"    I also wanted to the color/photo inspiration challenge #322 at   "LASTING MEMORIES"      Then I knew I could also enter it at  "SCRAPPING 4 FUN"   Challenge #84 - Anything Goes.

So I started looking for papers to use and I pulled out my My Minds Eye collection  'Chalk Studio II'
I haven't used it very much and of course it had great black papers and also this red and white striped paper so was perfect for the photo/color challenge.    I used my cricut to cut the scalloped circle from a solid black sheet with white floral design in upper left and right corners.    I then fussy cut the two chalk white flowers out of what wasn't cut in the corners to use as my embellishments,  Used a sparkly red bling for the centers and also matted on red card stock and fussy cut again.   I matted my picture in red to let it pop more against the black.   A small piece of white card stock to journal on that I inked in red and then used red ink for the date and location of the picture.   White Thickers for my layout and I was finished.

Here are the links for the  challenges.
