Nana King

A couple of months a go I made a layout of one of my Nana's so this time the layout is of my other Nana.

My Nana King is my dad's mum. You know I think she always looked the same to me. She was always cuddly and her love of cooking rubbed off on me. She made the best pastry which in turn made the best mince pies at Christmas.

This layout uses a sheet of last years Xmas paper from Kaisercraft which I distressed the edges after punching down two sides and adding a contrasting red behind.

I used the same red to make the die cut flourishes and leaves and the mats behind the tag and circle. The idea to add the ticking came from a sketch on "pagemaps" a while ago, I also made the rosette with it too. The photos are all originals and the handsome gentleman is my Grandad who I didn't get to know. That is my son in the larger photo when she lived in a nursing home.
The crown had to be added to go with her name.......
Thanks for looking in today.
I have decided to enter this in the monthly challenge over at www.merlyimpressions.co.uk
