This is a photo taken at a baseball game
at the U of Wyoming-Cheyenne
during Kristin's graduation week
back in the 90's.
I had just gotten a perm
and had no clue how to handle my hair.
This layout was made with class materials.

Sweet Shop Designs; Frame from "Candy-Frames" from Sweet Genevieve Designs.
My Mom's mother died when she was 5 years old. Her father
was a longshoreman in NY. He couldn't take care of her so he
went back to Norway and she was put in foster care. She was
in 13 homes during her early years. She became a nurse,
married my Dad, and gave birth to me at the age of 36.
She was the most wonderful mother and I miss her dearly.

Supplies: Paper, "Red Dots" from "Love Me Do"; Santa, holly, & star, by Gina Marie Huff for
Weeds & Wildflowers; Ribbon/Bow,candy cane from "Christmas Day Collection" for
Raspberry Road Designs.
My Dad had 3 Aunts that he dearly loved. They were all
from Norway and a bit eccentric.
Supplies: Paper, 'Enchanted Paper Set1 from Raspberry Road Designs'; frame from
"Doodly Pattern Frames" by Gina Marie Huff & Heidi Lynne Williams for Weeds and
Wildflowers; flowers, stems, butterfly from "Lazy Days of Summer" by Gina Marie
Huff for Weeds and Wildflowers.
I seem to be having some blog problems
so I'd better quit before it gets worse.
Sorry for spacing, etc. errors.

These pages are fabulous. I especially love the colors in the Warm Coat layout. What great stories to preserve. Here's another connection--my mother didn't marry until she was 35; we both had older mothers, very unusual at the time.
