    A work of love. What a treasure! I especially love your photograph of the ephemera topped with that pic of you. It makes for a perfect full page layout.

    lol that is a picture of my mom, it was the wildest thing, every photo of her was like looking at me. I never saw it so clear until doing this book. Even my husband walked by and said where are you? I said that is my mom!

    :beat I thought the same thing! You look so much alike! I'm so sorry for all the pain in your family- but happy you will be together with your mom. Together is a wonderful place to be- and you have a energy that just makes everything around you shine a little brighter. It's a beautiful gift- :beat
