Breathtaking....our angel

I've been doing some layouts of my niece, Megan for my brother.  I started an album for him last spring and gave it to him for Father's day....  You see, Megan was killed by a driver under the influence of drugs who crossed the center line March of this year.  What a tragedy for our family.  At such a young age to be swept away while on her way to visit her grandparents and see her beloved Jordon.  Megan touched the lives of everyone she ever came in contact with.  Always going out of her way to make everyone special. 
My scrapping is rusty, since I typically make cards.  Hope you will enjoy taking a look. Also my photo was just a reprint copy from her FB wall of photos.  The pearls I used were given to me by a friend that found a napkin ring holder at a Goodwill store. She sent it to me to do something with it as she wrote me a note of her find.  I loved it and have kept it in with my pretties and just now had the chance to use it for something special.
Merry Christmas to you all....

Simply Less is More Challenge week 40 is using Orange and Red together.  This may be unheard of having those colors as a Christmas card.  LOL..... But after making it... I love it!  haha.
Used my newest SU sentiment stamp from the Hand-Penned Holidays set.  Love them!  :=)  Basic Grey PP with just a hint of red with orange in the paper. Perfect and punched with an EK Success border punch!  Topped off with a beautiful red satin ribbon!  And I finger painted some white acrylic paint to my jingle bell then sprayed some clear transparent finish over it.
