Practical Scrappers ~ Art & Floris
This is my take on the Pratical Scrappers sketch this week. This lovely couple was like a bonus set of grandparents to me growing up. They lived one block away and had no family in Nebraska. They never had children, so they kind of adopted my parents and us when we first moved into the neighborhood.
They would spend every Thanksgiving with us. Floris made home-made pumpkin pies ~ my favorite! I am going to write down my memories of them for the next page ~ making this into a 2-page layout.
I used my Martha Stewart heart punch to make my photo border. From my Cricut library, I used Gypsy Font for the letter R and Stretch Your Imagination for the "swirlies". I welded a small one to the larger one. The background paper was kind of too "white" for me, so I trimmed it and added black around the edges. The brown around the black is just the chipboard I used to keep the page from sagging!!
