Remember Always

Hello everyone!
Today is Scrap Africa's new challenge reveal and the sketch is absolutely gorgeous!! 

When I saw Denise's sketch it came straight in my mind this photo, which I have found in an old album at my parent's house. This album belonged to my beloved grandma who died at the age of 94 (I can' t believe that 11 years have past since then) and is full of original vintage photos of her life.  She was born at 1909- you can imagine how old are they, they will not even need to be distressed! Now all these photos (and there are a lot of them) are in my hands and I' m going to make an album for them... Well, these are my first two pages and there are going to be a lot more of them :)

To the sketch now: I think it can be interpreted in so many ways not only because it is beautifully designed, but also because it has this 60's vibe going on there, which I absolutely adore. So whatever your style is, it would be a perfect base to work with. I can' t wait to see what you will come up with it!

some materials used on this page:
Prima: resist flower, washi tape, stamps 
Teresa Collins stencil 
Papertray Ink Clip Tips stamp
mists, inks, gesso, paper punches, pages from an old book, clothes tag, safety pin, pearl, grandma' s buttons...
