Wednesday - Family Husband

I will probably return a little later to post something for today specifically but i'd promised to show some stuff i've been making. I need to do a few errands this morning so I'll post this one now and come on back later

I made this one about my (paternal) grandmother. I have more to tell about her but this was the first page with 3 photos of me and my older siblings. I used some Chatterbox paper that i love and stitched it. I also added 2 ribbons - on on top of the other and created a loop at the top which i kinda like. And finally i added some drawings of my own to illustrate. This for me was essential as my grandmother liked to adorn letters to me with her drawings. Whenever I find myself thinking about her i seem to draw the same little drawings: ones with strawberries, pudding, and smiling flowers in pots - all things that mean Mom-Mom to me. She was a wonderful grandmother. Oh yeah - i also used my quickutz index tab die. And the drawings were done with pen, ink and colored pencils (prismacolors natch)

I decided I will be doing more of my own little drawings in my scrapbooking. Seems much more me than anything else.

This is just the most perfect layout. It makes me feel happy and warm inside just looking at it and reading it. Mom-Mom was so beautiful. When a woman is that beautiful once they are older, you know they were a knock-out in their youth. As Mom-Mom was. The way you've used the whole page and balanced it so well is enviable. The journaling looks so good. Now, for the drawings. Such a cool addition and it's leaving such a real and important part of yourself with the kids. I vote you do this on a lot more layouts for sure. Man, I wish I could draw so beautifully. How fun it would be.
