Aunt Ellie - Swirlydoos November Kit

I love vintage layouts and the Swirlydoos November kit was perfect for all of my vintage photos. I wish I had ordered two! This is a photo of my mother's youngest sister, Elnora. I have used this photo before, but I think it is much more suited for this line of papers. I used my Creative Memories oval cutting system to cute the main photo and the two matting papers. I kept the flower work simple on this one, you all know I can go crazy with the flowers at times. lol.

Here are a few close ups for you to see.

I did a little bit of everything from distressing to inking. One other trick I like to use is not gluing every corner to the paper. In the first photo above you can see where I left the corner raised to add dimension.

I enjoyed working with all of the layers. I used quite a few foam squares to give dimension to all of the photos and the title. I added ribbon to the page to add a touch of femininity.
