Two (2) Heritage Layouts of my Mom and Dad for my 2 Design Team Challenges

Please scroll down to see the Sketches In Thyme Sketch Challenge!
 The Pink Elephant Scrapbook Theme Challenge!!

Hi everyone, happy Thursday!!  Today is a double post for me!  The first layout is for The Pink Elephant Scrapbook Challenge, which is "Heritage"!  I luv, luv, luv, the way this one turned out!  This is a photo of my mom and dad right before they were married, or directly after.  They will be married 60 years the first of September, so you can do the math, or not!!  Around 1950.  This is one of my favorite photos I've found of them so far.. 
Almost everything I used on this layout was in my June Swirlydoos Scrapbook Kit and I really think it was perfect for this photo/challenge..  I also used last weeks sketch from Sketches in Thyme which is found here.. 
Here are the challenges this qualifies for:
Here is the list of scrappy things I used:
all of the papers are
g-c-d Studios ~ Ella Blue Collection
Peggy Sue
Grace Hallie
Ashley and
Dusty Attic Chipboard Flourish
Prima Flutter Vine

And here is my layout for this weeks challenge over at Sketches In Thyme...  I Just love this weeks sketch check it out here.. 
As you can see I changed it up a bit..  Remember, you can follow it perfectly or use it as a starting point... Anyhoo, I used  two more photos of my mom and dad back when they were dating.   The little photo is of my mom and dad and dad's bother, my uncle, and his parents, my grandparents... All of which are gone now except my mom and dad!!!   I'm so glad that my mother let me go through my grandmother's photos when I went back home this last time... And to my surprise my grandmother wrote on the back of each one with the names...  Wow, what a find...  I have so many more layouts I want to do that my head is just spinning........  I hope you've enjoyed looking at these two layouts as much as I've enjoyed making them!!!
