Last year, one of my hubby's Grandads sadly passed away. And as an Easter pressy my Mother-in-law wanted me to make a scrapbook page of the two of them to frame and give to Nan.
This photo was edited to make the background black & white, so that they stood out a little more, and I took the gorgeous blue colour from Nan's dress and used it through the flowers.

It was quite difficult and even quite stressful making something for family. I spent hours choosing the right colours and patterns, and it was ages before I dared to stick anything down.

The cream card with the verse on it was from Grandad Johns funeral, and the words are so perfect, no title is needed. I just really hope Nan likes it!
