The Last Goodbye- Scrap Around The World March Challenge

Welcome back to Scrap Around The World Challenge ELEVEN, 
hosted by Design Team member Alexandra Polyzou
  Γειά σας from Greece!
Feel free to interpret Alexandra’s mood board in any way you like,
 using one image, several of them, all of them or even just 
one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!
This is photo of my mom’s hand holding my grandmother’s hand on her last moments. Its a very special picture for my mom and she asked me if I could scrap it and frame it for her and so here it is.

I’ve used of course all my favourite products: Prima flowers and embellishments, Shimmerz paints and sprays and Blue Fern Studios chipboard

For Shimmerz I used: Sunny, Pink and Art Pop Pink. You can find all these colours in the Shimmerz Store and if you mention my name during checkout you will receive a free product.

You can see the texture and ink in the photo below using Shimmerz in the background and on the Blue Fern Chipboard: Charmed page dangles and Shabby Layered Frame.
White Card Stock: Coordinations
Prima flowers and Resins
Stencils: Prima and Heidi Swapp
