It's a Krafty Quotes Peak Day!!
I used a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt for my layout about the strongest woman I know, my Grandma. She turned 91 this year, and the picture was taken on my wedding day almost 8 years ago. She hasn't changed a bit!! Born in 1920, she has certainly faced her share of adversities, depression, wars, losing her brother, then her husband - both far too early, raising her two children on her own (they were 3 & 5 when their dad passed away). It was a struggle for sure, but she is fearless, wise, compassionate and loving. I admire her so much!!
Here is my layout - She is Remarkable:
I finished the layout around 11:00pm last night! I am a procrastinator my friends, it is true. I used Bazzill cardstock, patterned paper from Fancy Pants & Prima, Bo-Bunny and Jillibean Soup alphas, Prima flowers, Bo-Bunny rhinestones, bakers twine, K&Company Pearl Brads, Tim Holtz Tissue tape, Prima birds and a Prima mask. Lots of torn paper, and distressing with ink!
