Pixie Dust Paperie Challenge

Hello everyone ... 
Can I just say a big Thank You! to all you sweet blog friends for leaving such lovely comments and well wishes ... I really do appreciate it ...

Today I have a project to share for the Pixie Dust Paperie May Challenge 
Kirsty has titled this months challenge 
"Happy Mother's Day"
This is the beautiful inspirational picture for you


I lost my Mum 10 years ago ... I miss her so much ... she grew up in London and to me she was a beauty with style
I created this layout using 2 photos taken when she was about 19 ... war time too!



How I love the forties fashion


I added a few little touches of London which is where these photos were taken 


Pale blue was her favourite colour ...

I would love it if you would hop over to the Pixie blog and take a look at the lovely projects from the rest of the DT ... there are more to come too ... and you have till the end of May to submit your challenge entries ... I'd love to see what you create ...
 Don't forget to pick up a bargain in the Pixie shop too ... Kirsty has a lot of Special Offers on at the moment so please don't miss out ...

Thank you so much for visiting

Till soon

~ Ros ~

Beautiful page, Ros, I love those pictures of your mom. She was a stylish woman. Maybe it was the times, but my mom would not go anywhere with out a hat and white gloves! I lost my mom as well. Have a wonderful Thursday, I am off to hear my son's defense(for his doctoral degree!) My dil finished hers on Monday. This is it and they are off to Post doc in Arizona!

Those photos are wonderful. Definitely very stylish. Sorry if you got some spam emails from me. My email was hacked, lost everything and had to set up a new one. It's been a nightmare week.

Your mom is a beauty, and she is very stylist, I bet Dolce loves dresses in the 40s too.
Thanks for your lovely project and thanks for the shout out for Pixie! : )

Tracy said...

Uh yeah, I'd say she had style in spades! And class too. :-) What fantastic photos. They are tailor made for this awesome layout Ros. Gorgeous! Hugs!

Lovely pictures of your mum and beautiful layout! What a lovely design.

Great pictures - and a great idea, too! I was on an attic clearing spree all winter and have found so many old pictures of people that nobody knows anymore... What a great way it would be for them to be put to good use.
