Another "just because"...

This week, and I really don't know how this happened given the week that I've had, but I managed to finish a layout during the week. My inspiration was the beautiful buttons & doily from Purple Pumpkin. I thought they lent themselves to some earthy tones & decided to use the photos I took of our offspring on their 21st birthdays - very hard to get nice pics of them these days :(  I've also had this lovely clock chippy in my stash for a while now & decided it was time I used it. I used a brick mask with texture paste on the background and then sprayed with glimmer mist. I made my own leaves using Stampin' Up! stamps & ink. Throw on a bit of muslin & pearl flourishes & "Bob's my father", he really is!

And yes, I have just done a layout that wasn't for a challenge - highly unusual! :) Anyway thanks for dropping by, and if the mood takes you, please leave a comment :)xx
