A Grandmothers Love Blooms Forever-SOUS

Oh no..the summer is slowly coming to an end here in Finland..Well, maybe I exaggerated just a bit, we do have a few more months...LOL
But on a better note, its Friday again and we have our weekly reveal..
Generations Crafting was generous enough to sponsor some Basic Grey Doilies..They are were so much fun to play with and so verstile..They are constructed from  heavy paper, so they don't tear very easily..

Here is the sketch we were to use this week.. It was so much fun and so pretty..thank you BeggaHuna for creating such a beautiful sketch for us ladies to work with.
