50th Anniversary! Butterfly Garden Part Deux!

This photo of my dear great grandparents, Mamaw and Papaw, was taken on the occasion of their 50th Wedding Anniversary in 1954.  John Earl Williams and Addie Lavinia Powell were married on August 14, 1904 and were the parents of six children.  I remember, as a small girl, visiting them in Chickasha, OK -- on one such visit the local paper published a picture of my great grandmother, my grandmother, my mother, and myself, with the caption Four Generations!

Pink Paislee's beautiful collection Butterfly Garden was once again my choice to highlight this treasured photo.  I used a Page Map from Becky Fleck as the inspiration for the design.

Supplies from Flamingo Scraps -- Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Paper Collection, Butterfly Garden Metal Charm, Maya Road Crystal and Heart Trinket Pins, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Ranger Stickles, Prima lace trim; other supplies -- miscellaneous bling and ephemera, cat's eye ink.
Butterflies cut and punched from the gorgeous patterned papers highlight the layout.  Bling, Black Diamond Stickles, and Dragonfly Black Ink were used to add texture and detail to the flutterers, which were also pop-taped for added depth.   The scallop cut strip and photo mat were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.   Maya Road crystal and heart stickpins, a Butterfly Garden metal butterfly charm, miscellaneous bling and ephemera from my stash, and Prima lace trim finish out the layout!

Thanks for looking!!!
