Oma and Opa SWIRLYDOOS





About a year ago, my grandmother passed away. To remember her, her scrapped my favorite picture of her with my grandfather.

Almost all items are from the Swirlydoos November Kit. I love all the specialty paper in this kit. The key was from a previous kit. Can't remember which one! The hat on my grandmother's head is a Goldhaube, a traditional Austrian thing. It is made out of cloth on a wire frame, covered over and over with golden ornaments. My mother made this while she was pregnant with me. The way it looks depends on the region of Austria.

Did I mention, I absolutely adore Prima flowers? I loved playing around with the Dusty Attic floral border. I painted it, added crackle paint and finally added a few pearls for extra fun.



Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment!
All the best,
Elisabeth
