Grandpa & Me
I made this page for a challenge over at GinaK's StampTV. I would like to do at least one page a week this year. I am about 20 pages behind. Oh well. This is a picture of my grandpa and I in his Jackson Heights apartment. I had probably been out to Bloomingdales with Grandma in my snappy navy and white outfit. Maybe we had Italian ices on the corner. I still remember how excited Grandma would get when we flew over the Statue of Liberty. She lived in New York City for probably 45 years, and she never tired of it.
Here I used an old My Mind's Eye kit for the image and paper. I stamped images from Picture Frames and Polka Dots and Flourishes from Creative Play Stamps to add a little zing to the bottom layer. Blues Whale Art Glitter surrounds the mother daughter image. Why it has the angled stripes, I do not know. I have never seen glitter do this before. I use QUITE a bit of glitter, and this is a new one for me. Static, maybe?
BTW, don't forget the OUTRAGEOUS contest CPS is holding now! Click on the link about for more deets!! Can you say HUGE BAG OF PRIMAS?
