Forgotten photo with great memories

I was so excited I found this great picture of My Great Grandmother(little grandma we called her) and Papa and my Grandma Honey (which of course we called her big grandma) with my oldest Sam....this was taken at Sam's Christening  In February 1993....geez that seems like a life time ago....I didn't think I had any pictures of my Great grandmother or papa and I was so thrilled! So I had the picture now I just had to figure out what to do with it LOL of course that's where sketches always come in handy.....I got my sketch from Get creative it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.....I worked on this a lot yesterday and just kept thinking it was missing something....Then I saw the post for Scrap your Story  and thought this was perfect!

Here what I came up with....

I had just about everything placed but like I said something was missing....that was the bits of cork....I just happen to have an old cork board that was falling apart and I was just gonna throw the remnants away...haha I think they look awesome here

 just bits of cork and of course I have become obsessed with burlap and the bits of stings......
 Just some fussy bits and I plan on writing some more journaling on that bit of lined paper under the flower....there is already some on the tag
I was kind of proud of my little flower.....the button was some left over bits my Daughter had from one of her costumes she made( I've been trying to steal them from her for weeks) but once I got my grubby hands on it I wasn't sure what to do with it ....the flower was the perfect solution! Now she wants me to make her one LOL

Thank you so much for coming to take a all of those who celebrate Easter....Happy Easter....for those who don't have a wonderful weekend!
