70 birthday wall hanging

I was asked In December By one of Mums closest friends Kath, to make a special wall Hanging for another of  their friends, it was to be for her 70th Birthday On the 30th December.
I managed to get it done with all that was going on with my mum being so ill, This is the first chance I have gotten to blog it
 These two photos are of the box as it looks closed up . as you can see I have used one of the glitter girls Boards for all the embossing detail
 A few more close ups of the lid, the flowers are a mix of some of my own handmade flowers using Penny Duncan`s cut files, and the white ones are from Wild Orchids crafts
 The butterfly was done using a Martha Stewart punch, as were the punched leaves.
These have been all well glittered along with the flower petals.

Below you can see the Wall hanging sitting in the open box, Just used some crepe paper for the bottom of the box  

Here you can see the hanging out of the box, Again I have used the same Glitter Girls board
 to emboss the  Lilac and silver card.
 I have cut out a 70 on my cricut and covered in silver glitter, More punched and glittered Butterflies , and a few more roses For the centre
 In these two close ups you can just about see the dome enclosing the centre embellies.
I have gone around the edges with gems 
 In the photo below you can see both the box and wall hanging together 
Well I am proud to say that Kath really loved it.
 The lady who`s 70th it was made for told me at mums Funeral , That she is keeping it on display permanently.
That she loved it and the colours match her Bed room

My Mum

Elsie May Hancock
03/10/1929 -07/1/2012

My Mother Elsie passed away Yesterday Morning after a long illness
She was 82 and had a very fulfilling life.
She belonged to lots of Clubs for the young at heart,( you had to be in your 60s to be come a member) And enjoyed to travel and was always popping off with her widowed friends for midweek or weekend breaks .
She has been unable to do this for the past 3 years as her health deteriorated .

Here is a scrapbook layout I did last year of Mum and Dads Wedding  day.

The was photo for this layout was taken at Forde Abbey two years ago on her last holiday with us.
While we were still able to get her in and out of our car and transfer mum into her wheelchair.
We rented a cottage for a week just outside Yeovil 

I have had many Emails and Pm from friends on the Crafters companion Forum .

Thank You all for your Kind words. 

At the moment I am fine.
 I think after watching mums deterioration over the last few years, especially the last few months,This last week being the hardest  It had come as a bit of a relief. 
For those who have been through this loss , It is very hard to watch. 
I am sure you will understand. 
I am sure mum has gone to a much better place and is with those family members that have gone on before her( my dad, her parents and sisters and my own dear brother Mac) 
I take great comfort in this and know we will be together one day again. 

I think it will be over the coming months , when things happen and the thought come into your head, I must tell mum this , then you realise she is not here to tell any more., 

Life goes on I have two wonderful grandsons and another grandchild due in May. 
So Mum goes on in the family that she has left behind, 
That is still growing. 
As new great grandchildren come along and even over the coming years Great Great grandchildren. 

So thank your for all the support and kind messages that you have sent. 
It is a great comfort to me and my family
