Happy Birthday, Mamo!

Happy New Year Everyone! I just got back a few days ago from a trip to Wisconsin to visit my best friend and his family. His daughter really enjoyed the memory game I made - I think she just liked looking at all of the pictures!! I took so many new pics - now I need to scrapbook them!

My mom called me not too long ago and reminded me that today would have been my grandmother's 88th birthday! My family called her Mamo. I loved her very much and still believe that she watches over me everyday. I did this layout last May but I wanted to post it today in her honor.

Mamo is the one on the left hand side. On the top is my great grandmother and the bottom photo is my mom and her best friend on my mom's wedding day. I used a stencil and some paper piercing on this page, along with lots of inking to make everything look distressed. I think Mamo was beautiful and she would have shined at 88!!

Thanks for checking out my blog. I used a lot of paper and ink to make everything look older. Do you scrapbook? By they way, you have a great blog.
