Description:
My grandmother, who passed away when my Dad was very young. She looks like a fun and sparky woman.

I used my:
Merge in Style template album
Nordland Kit

and the berries and postage stamp from the All Things New kit (free with purchase collaboration kit!)

Thanks for looking :-)

      These pictures are so very amazing, and such a treasure. I love the way you let the pictures take over and not cover them with lots of elements.

      These photos are priceless. It's sad that she died so young, especially with a disease that nowadays has so many treatment options available. Love how you've put everything together with the neutral tones . . . looks like I'm seeing a scan of an old scrapbook page . . .

      This is amazingly beautiful. It speaks so to my heart. I have a grandmother who passed away when my dad was three. I know this affected him greatly. Her name was Helen. There are no pictures of her because she came from a Pennsylvania Dutch Family and they did not believe in such things then. My only knowledge of her is from my Uncle Irving who was her older brother. I think from the stories he told us, she may have been a lot like your grandmother.

      When I married my husband I converted to Greek Orthodox, however my name (Linda) is not Christian so I was told to be baptized Mary which is the tradition for non-christian names. I stood tall and said, my name will be Helen.

      She was the queen of Troy and the mother of Alexander the Great. My oldest son is Alex, named for his paternal grandfather. I hope I have moved her memory forward.

      This is a wonderful page. It moved me to tears. It will remain one of my favorites too.
