*~*Missed but not forgotten*~*
I would like to say a big thank you to cards Galore for giving me the motivation and inspiration to start on my 1st ever scapbook page. I have planned for the past 2 years to get a book started and today i finally did . So THANK YOU !!!
My page is dedicated to the memory of my mother-in-law Giselinde Spice who i never had the privilege to meet.
Giselinde Steinkellner ( known as Linda ) was born in 1925 in Neu zeltweg Austria . After the 2nd world war as a young women she moved to England where she met my husbands Dad , Married and had 4 children . My husband being the youngest .
Sadley in 1976 Giselinde Passed away after a battle with skin cancer Aged just 51. At the time my husband was only 13 years old . He still misses her today 36 years on.
Giselinde's Husband went on to marry again and due to a break down in the family nearly all her photographs were lost .
I was so lucky to get hold of a few copies .
The copies themselves are also old so i had a bit of trouble working with the main photo . I coverd it with clear ink and using a clear embossing powder heated it it give it a glossy photo looking appearance . On doing this the photo became transparent so i had to mount it onto white card. It was all a bit of a risk but thankfully it worked.
The papers i have used are all from the "stampin up " Range along with the flower stamp which i used to make the flower embellishments . I used a no name border punch for the decorative edges , and my trusty Cricut machine for the lettering .
I stamped the word "ANGLE" as that's what i believe she is .
I hope you have enjoyed hearing my story behind the face on my scrap book page and the page it's self .Thank you all for taking the time to pop by .
Have a fantastic day .
Love & hugs
