Grandma Zappa

This is a photo I scored from my parents & made copies of...it's my Grandma Zappa when she was about 16 years old. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how old this photo is, and her outfit and the cool hat & table cloth that she's posing with. I love how elegant my grandma looked...she died when I was very young, but I do remember her always wanting to FEED me and she was always happy to see me!

I decided to make this into a wall hanging because the size and shape of the photo fit this Crafty Secrets Sweet Chips Rectangle Chipboard Album perfectly. I used a brocade patterned paper from Crafty's "Classic" Paper pad for the background paper, and then cut out the beautiful rose image from Crafty's new "Summertime" Image and Journal booklet and attached it to the top of the image.
