Show Some Leg

I had some fun with this one.  I found these great photos of my godmother and her sisters and my mom taken after WWll.

Note:  You all know how important music is to me and how it usually coincides with my layouts.  Now I'd like to share  one of my favorite songs that we found performed on YouTubeI hope you'll take a minute to watch it.  The choir, as another art form, inspires my creativity. And these wonderful girls singing have nothing to do with today's layout theme...other than  Lily wrote this song for her mother--and this is a photo of my mom having fun and I miss my mom!  So hit the pause button on Playlist and hit the play arrow on YouTube.

Pages In Time inspiration sketch for the July PIT kit:
The July PIT kit provided the cardboard cutout shape, the 7 Gypsies Avignon Collection patterned paper: Fleur De Lys  (covering the shape),  Say It with Pearls embellie, lace and flowers.  I placed it on Kaisercraft Devonshire Collection pp from the June PIT kit.  I just liked how the two papers looked together.  And the June Devonshire Guinevere has a beautiful distressed pattern so I didn't have to add anything to it. 
From my stash:
Adirondack gold metallic paint dabber to edge the shape and the paper
paper pieced legs from Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess Collection: Lady of the House
rhinestone flower (from PIT)
Websters Pages alphas
Jenni Bowlin journal sheet
K&Co Kurio chipboard letters distressed with Ranger ink and ColorBox Fluid Chalk and a Hero Arts script stamp
black flower button

Here is this week's Pages In Time Thursday July 29 sketch:
And the August Pages In Time monthly kit is in the PIT store ready for purchase.  I've got it posted on my sidebar for future reference--but hurry.  Last month's kit was sold out in a flash.

Helene your layout is perfect with the legs! Very nice...I am sitting here with big tears...the choir is so extremely good. I love the song they sang and you saying about missing your mom touches my heart big time. My mom is developing dementia and even though she is still present ...I miss my mom too! It hurts

A Cards Delight said...

PS. I am looking at your song list! I sang Que Sara Sara to my children every night and now they sing to my grandchildren!!!
