Time for a New Post....another page for Triple T not used!!

Once again, I have a page I completed for the Triplicate Trials Tuesday DT but sadly we closed before use. I had this photo in mind when coming up with the Layout design and colours. So here it is

The photos is of my mother & myself enjoy a 'cuppa' with my brother Paul in the foreground. This was taken not long after our arrival in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. My mother had just married my step-father, Peter Longrigg who was teaching there and we had moved there. This was his house at Korobosea, a suburb of Pt Moresby.

So I have used Stampin' Up double sided paper as the background over their plain card stock. Sadly, they did not have the right mint green so I had to find something at Bernadette's Scrap n' Stuff at the Richardson shops to cut out my circle. All other card stock was either SU or my own scraps. I made the flowers myself and the leafy flourish is from Kim at PaperArtsy....I just had to own that one!! The letters I have coloured but are from an old game that had belonged to my mother. The vellum butterfly comes from a SU punch as well with the pearls added.
Some other challenges I have entered this into are:
Get Hippity with Ippity - Embossing
Hooked on Craft - punches / diecuts
Make it Monday - Always Anything Goes
My craft spot - Hand made flowers
The Ribbon Reel - butterflies
Lollipop Crafts - Anything Goes
