Today I would like to share Color Me Scrappy's Challenge #55!
The color scheme is as follows:
I absolutely loved using the pop of orange here!
And here's the sketch:
Isn't it fabulous?
Here's my take:
And some close ups:
My inspiration for this page is from one of the songs that Josh Groban's sang at the concert my sister and I attended entitled "The Prayer." I made my layout in honor of my mom who has been very sick after falling and breaking her hip just before Christmas. She has been through so much in the past couple of weeks and I felt that a prayer should be documented for her. In addition, I used my OLW (One Little Word) for this year, too, which is "Believe." The amazing photo came from Facebook . . . . a fellow scrapper, Kelly Klapstein, posted this photo last year when I was taking a photography class about using a sun-flare! I just love this photograph and had to use it here for my mom! (Thanks so much, Kelly! You can check out her super amazing blog HERE.)
And I also want to share some photos of my mom with you:
These were taken before she became a mom:
A photo taken of her when she became a teacher:
She's standing next to my dad here on the boardwalk in Atlantic City:
Here she is right after she became a mom for the first time - she's holding my sister, Cathy:
And here she is holding my twin sister and me right after we were born:
She loved to play tennis:
And she loved to take us to the Rose Garden in Allentown, PA! Here I am with my mom, my twin sister, Karen, and older sister, Cathy. Such a beautiful place!
Just some photos of my mom from her younger days. Wasn't she beautiful? I hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane as much as I did.
Take care everyone and as always, thank you SO MUCH for stopping by my blog today.
