Remember This

Good morning and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner, it's always nice to have visitors!
It's Monday and that means it is time for another Challenge Me Monday over at
This week's challenge is called Remember This and here are the rules:

Make something to remember a person, a special time or anniversary.
Remember to use at least one Cricut cut.
I'm really excited to share my project for this challenge with you today.
My project centers around some very special grandparents.
My Mama's  parents, Marige and EJ Rasberry (better known as Nanny and Papa), played a very important part in my life.  They were wonderful, loving grandparents and I miss them dearly.  I created a two page scrapbook layout using some black and white photos that my Mama shared with me.  This project was a joy to work on and really took me down memory lane for awhile. I hope you enjoy my layout....

I really love the vintage look of this wonderful paper by K&Company.

Recipe for this page:
* Photo Frames - Heritage, charm feature - top mat cut at 6.75 inches.  Smaller frame at 4.75 inches.
* Large double mat - Elegant Edges, oblong and shadow feature cut at 10.5 inches, which I then cut in half.
* Grandfather clock - French Manor, cut at 7 inches. The tiny gold medallions are from Storybook.
After cutting them from gold cardstock, I spritzed them with Glimmer Mist for some shine.
* Corners - Storybook, cut at 2 inches.
* Ribbon - I layered an ecru lace and dark brown velvet ribbon (both purchased at HL).

Recipe for this page:
* I used the second half of the mat I created from Elegant Edges.
*  Letters for the name RASBERRY are cut from Storybook at 1 inch.
* Photo mats are from Heritage.
* Tree is also from Heritage cut at 5 inches.
* Corners are from Storybook.

I hope you have enjoyed my project for this week's Challenge Me Monday. Oh, and by the way, this is also my project for my own personal One Layout Per Week Challenge. (I managed to work in a 2 fer)!

I hope you will stop by FCCB and check out all the fabulous work by own talented Design Team members.
