Day 12 - Throwback Photo (Photography Challenge)

Free Spirit Collection by Dawn Inskip
photo: private

This photo shows my aunt Helene. I never met her in person because she passed away in the age of 27. My mom was 13 at that point. But she often told me about her sister how brightly she always was even though she knew that she would die young. At that time there was no medicine for her illness.

      oh Gina, what a beautiful page and photo. The paint drips n the paper makes me think of tears running down a face due to your Aunt's premature death. So sorry you never met her, but I know she is smiling knowing your Mom told you all about her, and also your wonderul tribute to her. I love the beautiful blend of her photo (she was a beautiful woman) into the background. Gina this is gorgeous. TFS

      Aw, what a sad thing to lose an aunt before you even got to meet her. She was beautiful. I'm glad that your Mom has kept her memory alive by telling you about her. Your page is gorgeous! I love the photo blending and the soft flowers with the date tag.

      A beautiful heritage layout. I love the butterflies framing your aunt's photo.

      I can only agree with everything cfile and Karen said. What a sad story, but how beautiful to keep the memory alive. I, too, like the blending in particular.
