Aunt Lou (Designed for C'est Magnifique)

I so loved using the C'est Magnifique September kit and it had the perfect elements to let me create a page of my beloved Great Aunt Lou. I've been waiting to scrap this and here she is wearing her apron, taking a break and reading the newspaper. I used a Design-Honey sketch and it was almost effortless creating this page. The Dusty Attic chippie was embosssed with a folder, misted, inked and liquid pearls was applied to finish it off.   There's a Bits and Pieces give away of the September kit so head on over to the C'est Magnifique blog and enter.
