My Mom went to England.....

Stamp Set 475 - Holiday Foliage

At Sparkle N Sprinkle we are having an In House Challenge for December which is to make a scrapbook page. Then our designers would get to vote on their favorite one on Jan 1st, 2013 and the winner would get a $25 to spend in the store. For my layout I used the stamp set Holiday Foliage which you can find in the store here; I incorporated a lot of embossing powders, stamps and glitters in this scrapbook page which again can find in the store here, and the complete details on how I made this layout will be available on Jan 1st, 2013.When I was growing up we had a couple West Highlander White Terrier dogs, one name Allister who ran away & never came back and then a couple of years later, we got a new Westie name Tammy who died just after my son was born. She was 16 years old, so we have quite a few ornaments in our house featuring Westies. My sister's kids had two Westies called Casey & Molly when they were growing up. Both has since passed on and Casey was born the day after my son so we could always remember how old Casey was.So you know the old saying; my Mother went to England and all she brought back was the dumb old sweater. So here is my scrapbook page of my oldest nephew who is 14 years old now. In this picture he is about 14 months and his wearing a 'Westie' Sweater that my mom brought back for my son who is now 17 years old. Unfortunately my son never wore the sweater  because it was too small for him by the time winter rolled around again. I was too dumb to put it on him in the summer and take a picture. So both my nephews wore the sweater. That's what is written on the hanging sign.

So here is a close- up of the hanging sign.
