Happiness

Greetings one and all!  I hope you are enjoying a safe day at home if you live in the ice ridden areas of the country this morning.  Today I have a layout using the ever lovely Graphic 45 Bird Song collection.

 This is a portrait of my father and his sisters taken in 1944.  I titled it "Happiness" since those were happy times in his life. 
 I wanted to give the bouquet an Asian flair so I cut out leaves and hopefully made them look as if they came off a bamboo stalk. 

 Paper
Graphic 45 Bird Song collection

Embellishments
Martha Stewart Blue square crystals
Zva black flourish
Graphic 45 Bird Song chipboard pieces


Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today.  Please help me reach my goal of 50 followers!!  Thank you.

Challenges:

 Lasting Memories Use the word love and add wings.
(the bird has wings and the word love is partial tucked under the leaves by the little girl's arm)
