Itty Bitty Betty Anne
This is one of the layouts I did for the blog hop challenges. My Friend Bev's challenge was a blue and yellow layout and black and white photo. I realized I don't have many papers in those colors so had to add in a fair amount of cardstock but I'm very happy with how it turned out. It was the first time I had used the around the page large punch by Martha Stewart and really liked it, so I'm sure to use it again. I glimmer misted some white flowers to make them blue and yellow/
I'm the little one in the picture and the girl holding my hands is my oldest sister Ardell. Although, she was 11 years older then me she always treated me very special. She often let me tag along after her and even when she started dating she wouldn’t go out on an evening date without reading me a bedtime story. As we grew up she wasn’t just my beloved sister, she was my best friend. Sadly we lost her very suddenly to a brain aneurysm 12 years ago. She is never far from my thoughts and I was so happy to have a picture of her and I together. The butterflies on the layout are for her.
