Jan WK2 UKS Challenge

Apologies in advance for the poor quality of this photo!!!!
I swear it has never been daylight for days, which is bad for us crafters.


This layout is for my BIL Nigel, sadly deceased in August 2004.
The photos are two of my favourite shots of him & my sister, Tracy.
Elvis song/film title 10pts
Bling (for the vegas years) 10pts
Blue (for the suede shoes) 5pts
Something round for the gold discs 5pts = bonus points 30
SLO= 10pts, total pts earned= 40pts.
Design is based on the Pencil Lines Sketch 9.
The papers are sarapapers, in a book called Retro.Cut into 3 circles. Bling brad, MM. Bling stars, Papermania.
Bloom is made up of 3 separate ones from a pot called Just Flowers.
Title was generated on my computer in wordart, font signature. Handcutting is the pits!!!!
The journalling around the circles is what I would tell him if I could & he would no doubt laugh.
It was so easy to make up to the journalling point & then I did struggle a bit with it.
Had a good cry, as you do & then decided it was just right.
