3 Generations Layout

This is a priceless photo of my hubby with his brothers and dad and baby Lucas taken during his first birthday party back in September. It's all THREE generations of the Chin men all together! How wonderful is that?

The layout is inspired by Sketchy Thursdays plus further inspiration from Scrap-It-lah. Below are the criteria on Scrap-It-lah's Elia's October Challenge:

1.      Old book paper, sheet music or something similar downloaded off the internet & printed out.
2.      Fussy-cutting.
3.      Hand-stitching using embroidery floss.

Here's my layout:
Priceless photo of all 3 generations! Alas, Lucas is fast asleep here but oh well, it's still a wonderful shot nonetheless. It's not easy to get everyone together for a photo opp :) Hubby's the one in the center with the wide smile holding Lucas.

Sketch 10.27 on Sketchy Thursdays. Love this sketch! The flaglines are so cool :)

I'm using Simple Stories' Generations collection here. Just simply LOVE this collection! Here are some close-ups:
Title says: "3 Generations of Chin Together" (Chin is my husband's family surname). Some fussy-cut flowers here as well.

Scrolls made with old book paper and tied with floss. The doily shape is fussy cut and hand-stitched with floss.

Border die cut with Spellbinder and hand-stitched with floss

Background is spray misted with some TA in Red Velvet. The flagline is held together by these gorgeous MM antique copper brads and more floss.

I'm glad I managed to complete this LO and upload in time, thankfully Lucas decided to take a long nap today otherwise I don't think I would have made it! *pheeewww* :) Anyway there's still time to play-along, so head on over to Scrap-It-lah's  and Sketchy Thursdays now :)

Thanks for looking! Have a lovely weekend ahead :)
