Hi everyone!!! Boy has it been hard to slow down on my scrapping for the last week, but my hand is getting better and so I decided to make a layout.. I found this beautiful sketch over at Once Upon A Sketch and I really wanted to try it out. The theme we were to use for our layout was "Mum".. anyway you want to interpret it...
Here is the sketch...
I decided to scrap my Grandmother who passed away in the summer of 2006 at the age of 96 1/2 and she was still living on her own up to the very end. Granted my parents were always close by after my Grandfather passed away, but she was a very independent lady.
One of the things she loved were her beautiful flowers, so I decided to scrap this photo I found from 1957 of her and her roses.... I added the little insert photo to show her face since you can't see it in the other photo..
Here are a few close ups...
