Family Layouts

My dad passed away on February 14, 2008 after being very sick for almost 16 years.  We miss him but know that his suffering had been long and hard on his body.  I have been collecting photos of him since that day and keep thinking I'll eventually get them into a scrapbook for my mom.  I finally got around to working on it some today.  I only have a couple of other pages done so this makes about five.  I have a lot of pictures left to add to it and hope to have it somewhat complete by Valentine's Day this year.  It should help get mom through what has turned out to be a very sad holiday for her. 

There were only two svg files used on one of the pages.  One was a frame created by Penny Duncan and I used it to help hide some very tattered edges to an old family photo.  The file did help to pull the page together as it has leaves as do the gerbera daisy flowers I cut from the svg file I created a couple of weeks ago. 

There is one other page I almost have completed, but it has a lot of journaling on it which will tell the story of how mom and dad met.  It is a really sweet story and they had many years together.  They had struggles through the years, but love and faith always kept the family strong. That's the story I hope that viewers of the scrapbook will see. 

Blessings to each of you - and have a wonderful week!
