It's a Krafty Quotes Peak Day!!

Kraftin' Kimmie has another fabulous set of Krafty Quotes this month!!  I am so excited to be a part of another release!!  Thanks so much Kimmie!!!

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!

Check out Kraftin' Kimmies Challenge Blog for all the Krafty Girls participating today!!  Thanks for looking and I will see you Sunday for the Blog Hop!!
