Bird is the Word April Challenge

I've used Kaisercraft English Rose Collection paper for this project. 
The larger flowers are Tim Holtz dies which have been sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmermist and then distressed and rolled after inking with Versa Color and Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  The centres are ribbon roses and I handmade the pin poking from behind the flowers at the top of the page.
I embossed the chipboard frame before adding gesso and ink.  The little scroll has been sprayed with glimmermist, inked and rolled with a wooden stick.  The key is from Stampin' Up and I handmade the stick pin.
I used a very old piece of dressmaking tape measure for the date and placed it on an inked doily.  I cut a journalling block in half and inked it before placing behind the photo.  There's also a piece on the opposite side of the photo.  I have hidden the journalling on an inked tag under the photo.  I've also used Kaisercraft rhinestones for this page along with some medical gauze.
This is me at 18 years of age so it was a very long time ago and I was quite naive at the time - all I wanted was to be married and have four children.  I did have two children and I now have two step children as well so a total of four !!!
