that darn icy weather

Just before Christmas (that seems a long time ago) we should have done this page at craft den but the bad weather came and the class was cancelled till a fortnight ago when the class did it only I was still iced up at home. So, I bought the pages last week and have done my take on it.
The papers are Black market paper society I used an old doily and sprayed it with olive vine glimmer mist see bottom left hand side, cut and layered the roses and added some lace used some lime green stickles on the printed swirl, cut and stamped a sizzix postcard die and finally added a hat pin and ribbon as an ode to that hat of my great grandma.
The pic is of my grandma with her mother in law on the beach and really by the page elements you would think they were abroad but actually its Scarborough poetic licence its allowed I hope.
My gran looks so elegant whats that scarf about round her neck she looks as though shes just flown in in her own bi-plane and great grandma, full dress and a ram rod back no slouching there she must have been boiled, oh you have to laugh. sorry I'm waffling again. thanks for popping by x
