I {Heart) You- Impression Obsession Challenge

This week's challenge at Impression Obsession is a Valentine's Challenge

As you know, I am a fan of Hearts!!!

I created this layout in Memory of my Beautiful Grandmother

The Photo is Circa 1939

Grandma was in her 19th year. This picture was taken either shortly before or early into her pregnancy with my Mother. She was an absolutely stunning woman, even into her 80's. Her Bright Blue eyes never fading. I definitely inherited my love of crafting and music from her and am so grateful for that. I know she watches over me and that is a comfort.

For this Layout, I used the following Stamps"

and if you look closely on the tag and banner, 
Hanging Notes. Rather than stamp right down on the paper, I rolled the foam mounted stamp "here and there"

I used Paper from the Paper Loft, Gentler Times Collection and was inspired by the sketch  that I posted on the blog yesterday

The Flowers and "Love Brads" are From Prima Marketing Inc.

I also used some Dylusions Ink Spray to Muddy up the Paper a bit
Vintage Photo Ink for Distressing!
