War Bride

Today I want to share a special layout I made for my sister-in-law.
One day when we were visiting ,she mentioned that she had found some love letters her and my husbands father had written to their mother.
So I knew I needed to put these together on a special page.



Now I am sure you know that I didn't use the original letters- letters and envelopes were scanned- even the picture is a reprint.
I used this yummy Lost & Found glitter paper from HL, I even found some glitter letters from the same line of paper.
I used a mixture of flowers from Wild Orchid and Pizzazz Aplenty. Ribbon and trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This was framed in a 12x 12 white frame- it really made the layout pop.
I am pleased to say she loved it!

  8. This is just beautiful. Who wouldn't love it?!?! I have an album that I have started as a multigenerational one and have a poem that my Dad wrote for my Mom when he was away in WWII. Also have the telegrams saying that he was coming home and a few more wonderful pieces.
    You did a wonderful job on this gift!
