Grow Old With Me - Scraps of Elegance
March 2015 Mood Board Challenge

I played along in a challenge!  And it wasn't a Prima one either!!
Haven't done that for YEARS but I did like the look of this mood board
by Anna Rogalska for Scraps of Elegance.  To play along you need to
 request to join their community page on Facebook & share your layout there. 

I made a screen save of the rules of the challenge, 
& you can find their Facebook page HERE.  

I used Prime "Tea Tyme"Charmuse paper which I gessoed from the 
centre outwards before splattering with Prima Color Bloom Sprays.  

I used a set of Prima flowers with some sparkly dangles.  I've had them for
 YEARS & this was most definitely the PERFECT page to use them on!

Around the photo I used some Prima 3 x 4 inch journaling cards that I flipped over
 to reveal the colours at the back, that tied in with the colours of the mood board.  

I also used some older SIIC swirls from Prima & used some new
 Prima bling from the Coffee Break Embellishment set.  

I cut the title from a Forever Green Journaling card & the typewriter embellishment
 comes from the Coffee Break 3D stickers.  It ties in with the layout as my MIL 
is still a lecturer at the ripe old age of 76 now.

Isn't that mood board just impossible to resist?!?
