Before anything else, this layout is in tribute to my mother who loves all things Victorian.
I have this photo of my mother from when she was in school. It's a tiny photo, about 2 x3. I scanned it, and turned it into a 4 x 6. I was inspired by the sketch at Sunday Sketch & Stamp. Since I wanted to bring out the beauty in this photo, I turned to the Vintage Stamping Challenge. Their theme was feminine beauty.
I finally got to use my Cricut Heritage Cartridge for the silhouette on the top right corner. I cut the title, Mother, from the Circut Sophisticated Cartridge. The dress form is a stamp from my new stamp set, Vintage Threads from TPC Studio. Finally, two leather flowers finish the layout.
