Lifetime of Memories

It's finally my turn to reveal my LO as guest DT for The Lollipop Ladies Challenge #46 - Turkish Delight. The photos are of my husband's maternal grandparents on their wedding day. I came across them when my mother-in-law was compiling a photo montage for her father's funeral so this LO is bittersweet. I've held on to the photos for about a year, waiting to get just the right products. Lots of Imaginarium Designs chipboard on this one, plus a Charms Creation heart and Kaisercraft fabric flower.

The Lollipop Ladies challenge this fortnight is inspired by Turkish Delight with an added challenge of squares. I only managed to go with rectangles but stuck with a white and pink colour scheme. Entries close in 5 days and you could win 3 digi stamps from Mad for Markers.

This LO was inspired by the wonderful sketch over at Sketches with a Twist. I have rotated the sketch 90 degrees clockwise but kept most of the elements. The twist was to use stitching. I have sewn down the lace and middle paper strip, plus there is the stitching from the Charm's Creation heavenly heart.
