Vintage Beach LO of my great grandparents!


Recently my grandma gave away all of the pictures she had to family members and lucky me I had first dibs.So one of the pictures that I absolutely adore is this picture of my great grandparents in Cuba. I never met them being that they passed away before I was born but this picture really gives me an insight into how they were. The picture shows an air of confidence between them and I wanted to make a layout with the picture rather than just stick in a photo album. This was a toughie for me because I had to incorporate vintage and a beach theme into one layout with the items I already had. But with some K&Co Paper, my Cricut, some of my great grandma's lace and trim(which my grandma gave me as well) and one of my mom's crochet flower and I made it! The title is in Spanish being that it is in Cuba it says"The Beach in the 50s". TFL!
Materials:
Cricut Carts
Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art(Bottom border)
Sesame Street Seasons(Sun)
Ashlyn's Alphabet(Title)
Recollections Flowers(Blue Flowers)
Lace and trim are my great grandmother's who used to sew dresses
Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls folder(Sky)
Irock gems
