My inspiration for this LO went as follows:

Spices > Cooking > My Nana

Many of my memories of my Nana revolve around her cooking and thus I was inspired to create a LO about her which will eventually end up in my "Book of Me" album. I also used a circle and lots of brown as inspired by the brown circle pots in the picture. And in a neat twist, the PPs I used are from the "Dill Blossom" range from SEI - "Marjoram" and "Tarragon"

LOL about the pp names!! Very appropriate! Love simplicity of your LO.
Your Nana sounds very much like mine! She used to make aprons and coat hangers for the Ladies Guild fetes at the church, was a very good cook and suffered from arthritis too!

I love that photo of your Nanna and the story in your journaling is beautiful. I am sure this page will be treasured both now and in years to come.

I love the leaves and flower and the scalloped edge gives a lovely feminine feel.
