2Feb12 Butterfly Challenge - Mary Isabelle with Ursula & Charles


2Feb12 Butterfly Challenge - Mary Isabelle with Ursula & Charles

I'm late posting this, but the theme for this challenge was butterflies. This is my husband's great-grandmother with her first two children. The little girl in the pendant is the daughter of the little girl in the main photo. This is the only photo that I've seen of Mary Isabelle where she had a hint of a smile. I think life became harder for her after this photo was made. TFL!

    I love the postcard effect! Beautiful heritage page
    Beautiful page! I love the colors, the layers and how you used the butterflies. Wonderful job with the challenge!
    What a treasure of a photo! I love the nostalgic way you've shown it -- actually both of them. Very tender and sweet. The butterflies looks great on the page along with the other lovely embellishments.
    I love the way you've layered those beautiful papers to make a landscape layout. I love the vintage embellies with this treasure of a photo. Well done!
    This is a beautiful heritage page. Well done.
    Lovely page! I like the use of both photos. The old postcard makes a great mat, too.
    We all talk about the 'Good old days', but I think life was pretty hard in those days. I love your old photos and the story behind them. The envelope is pretty. Lovley layout.
    This is a fantastic heritage layout! I love the antiqued photo and the little locket. Your paper layering and embellishment clustering are FABULOUS! Thanks for joining the butterfly challenge.
    Beautiful heritage page! Love all the layering and emblishments. Wonderful page for your memory book.
    Absolutely beautiful. I love butterflies and the ones you added here are lovely. Love the heritage page and the wonderful photos. Love the post card effect you used and all the elements and background papers. Wonderful layout.
