Gaby Abby Challenges with SEI Week 5 ~~~ Picture Inspiration

Hello my friends and followers!!! We are starting our Gaby Abby challenges with SEI this week showcasing a beautiful line from SEI. Now, when I mean beautiful....well, that's exactly what I mean... this collection is very elegant. I just love the huge flowers and the embellishments the collection has are just exquisite.... that is the perfect word!!! EXQUISITE!
I really think this line is so elegant that I could only think of my grandparents when looking at this collection.
So, here is my project for this week.

If you have been taking at look at my projects over the weeks, you have seen my grandpa in a few of my projects. All the pictures you see were taken by him! He was an AMAZING photographer.

Ok... you might be thinking why the color on this picture... Well, let me tell you that back in the day when we had no color film my grandmother (in pictures) would hand paint the pictures when people wanted color in them. Yep, she did a beautiful work. Many of the pictures that were hand painted are still hanging on my grandma's living room. That is why I decided to leave it like that......

Aren't they just so elegant and beautiful! 

For this layout I got inspired by a sketch from Page Maps

and the following, all SEI products!
Moonrise Assortment Pack
Moonrise Die-Cut accents
Moonrise Metal Filigree
SEI chalk ink

I hope you have enjoyed what I created and I hope you get inspired!!!
