Lasting Memories - 216

Lasting Memories - # 216 -  Remember Someone Special
This week I'm super excited to bring to you my latest Canvas designed layout for this DT..
My oldest boy's teacher has just lost her Grandmother, so I asked for a photo and have decided to make this for her, for Christmas.. And I have to admit that it is quite hard having to hold onto it until Christmas, I'm so proud of how it turned out that I want to rush over and give it to the teacher now.. lol
There are so many details in this canvas that I thought it best to make the pic below as big as I can.. :)


Now time for some close ups from around the layout...
The little glass bottle highlights the colour of the necklace in the photo.. 
I used 3 Prima embellishment packets for this, 1x Prima flower packet, about 15 of the plain white flowers along the bottom.. The really cool "flower centre jewel" thingys.. Lots of super gorgeous clay embellishments that we sent to me in a swap and silver thread ribbon..

Plenty of Gesso on the base and the hessian style ribbon behind the photo...
So it's not exactly a cheap canvas, but it is definitely worth it! I love the finished product and truly hope that Lane's teacher will love it too!!

So please, do remember someone special this week and join us over at the Lasting Memories challenge blog with your layout too!
