I just did this layout yesterday, for my Mother. I just need lots of pictures around of her. She passed away 5 years ago, and I still miss her greatly. This Layout is displayed on my newly painted clipboard on my newly done French wall in my studio. Check it out at Something Special.
She was a wonderful person. So talented and beautiful. She did some modeling early in her young adulthood, could sing opera, was a private pilot, had been a stewardess, could make beautiful things and was an artist, plus there was nothing better than getting a hug from her. I love you Mom! I hope she knows how much she is missed.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
