Monday Layouts!!

Thought I would dig deep into the files and share a few more projects that I have done in the past, since I have been busy putting the finishing touches on my Buzz and Bloom project for the month.

This is a layout I did for Buzz and Bloom some months ago. It is my Great Great Aunt and her husband. She was Cora Brooks, marrying Fred Gibson. It was not a family photo, either, as my next door neighbor had it for the Gibson side! What a treasure I found. I was so glad she let me copy it!

This second one I did for my father many years ago. Growing up on the farm, this ribbon, article, and photo were always on display...When Mom and Daddy moved off the farm, I took the goodies to preserve them in a way that could be displayed in their new home. In the article, it describes how my father won the ribbon and beat out his older brother. It was a memorable occasion! When I was originally doing the layout, I asked Daddy if he remembered what the cow's name was, and he immediately blurted it right out! "Maple Grove Sylvia"!! After 50+ years, he remembered that name! A memory like a steel trap!

Happy Monday, and if anyone is off like us, have a great vacation! Keri
