In This Life: Scrap That! September Challenge

The Scrap That! challenge was to create a page with the name of a song in the title.  I used the beautiful Pion papers in September's kit to create this page:
Scrap That! Sept. kit:   Pion Papers (Birdsong Collection) 
The photo is of my grand daughter with her parents (my daughter and son-in-law). I love this photo because it absolutely captures the depth and breadth of the new parents' love for their baby daughter.
I thought the song "In This LIfe" was perfect for this layout.
My favourite version of the song was sung by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole. (I tried to find a video link to post for you, but there seems to be some kind of blackout for his songs.) Here are some of the words:
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life, I was loved by you.
I used my Cricut to create an interesting shape from the Pion papers to place under the photograph, and added a doily. The lovely white Prima flowers came in the kit.  I made the eyelet flower from the trim that came in the kit.  Actually, everything here came in the kit, I just added a bit of TH trim, and inked the chipboard letters with London Fog.

Here's a  tag I created from the same kit:

This baby is no relation - it's a vintage picture on one of the Pion papers in the collection.  I could not resist her winning smile.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Thanks to those who take the time to leave such sweet comments - each one is read and appreciated.
