4 Generations

It's not the first time that I've used this title on a page, but it seems appropriate to the photo. Last time it was one of my nan, my mum, me and my daughter. This time we're on the other side of the family, with my grandad, my dad, my sister and my nephew.

I made the page for this week's challenge at UKScrappers; it was set by Alison, and she asked us to use a theme of Grandparents, stickers or ribbon, and punched or die-cut shapes.

Once I had chosen my single photo, there were no criteria for the layout of the page so I chose to work with Miniowner's September sketch. I machine-stitched her circles, which gave me a headache when my bobbin thread ran out mid-circle, but I did manage to rescue them. I double-matted the photo on torn paper, and used a second piece to ground my title on the opposite circle.

I realised towards the end of making this page, that it also fits in with Rochelle's September Challenge - a Tic Tac Toe grid where I have used the middle column - stitching, numbers and jewels.
