It's hip to be square.

Here is my Grandpa Maki.  He came from Finland in the 1900s.  I never got to meet him, he passed away before I was born.  This is my dad's father.  When the family got together for the funeral a few weeks ago for my Uncle Roger we decided to share photos with each other.  This is one of the shares, and I thought I would share it with you.
This tag is for Tag it On! at Dragon's Dream.  
The challenge is China Blue.  
Thanks for another fun challenge, Frankie!!!
I used some Hero Arts stamps, a Deja Views sentiment and the Fibers are from Dovecraft.  The paper is DCWV Summer Stack.
It's hip to be square, and Orderly!!
365 cards Day 81 is challenging us to use 5 squared today.  Mine are stacked on top of each other.
And O is for Orderly at ABC Blog.  This is definitely orderly and symmetrical.
The paper is DCWV Summer Stack
The sentiment is Deja Views
The image is Lisa's Altered Art.

ATC Wednesday's theme is Angels.
SoArtful's weekly theme is Cherubs.
Wednesday Stamper is Mixed Media.
The stamped words are provo craft.
The angel images are from Rubber Stamper Victorian Angels.

I am going to spend some time in the sun with the dog now.  What a beautiful day.
