I had a wonderful time making this.
The photo is my Grandfather in his uniform during the war.
The sentiments couldn't have been better for this!
I will always remember him, I have so many 
happy memories of my Grandparents.

  4. Hi Liz, Well this is a treat. What a wonderful surprise scrapbook page! I love what you did with the layout. The lace die adds interest and the flowers turned out beautifully. I can even see the little sparkle you added to the blooms. I really like how you cut the leaf swirls out of white cardstock and then sponged them with the green, really lovely effect. Great Job.
    Blessings and Hugs,
