My mom is the happiest person I know! You can hear her laughing from accross a crowded room - and you know it's her too! She's always been the kind of mom that will give her opinion, but only when asked and she always tries to look on the bright side of everything - I LOVE that attitude. Her glass is always half full - not half empty. I almost lost her a few years ago and that made me appreciate her that much more...if that was possible! She is the BEST grama in the whole world to my daughter - they both adore each other! I thank god everyday for the blessings He has given me - especially my mom!
I have a very different kind of mom....not the PTA kind, or the Suzie Homemaker kind...but the kind that has really expanded my life. My mom was a hair dresser by trade - but as soon as my younger sister was 18 - she got herself a new career - as a TRUCK DRIVER! YEP - my mom drives a big 18-wheeler. My mom and dad double team their own truck. (FYI - here's a little sticker shock for you...it costs $1,200 to fill their truck up with fuel!)
My mom is a HUGE lover of hunting and fishing. Our vacation time is spent fishing in North Dakota, bear hunting in Northern Wisconsin and deer hunting is central Wisconsin. My mom loves the outdoors, she loves her flowers and she loves to take pictures. So these pages really show her doing the things she loves and she's even been know to play a little Guitar Hero!!!
Here's a close up the of the picture panel. You have to score these at 1/2" at the top so they will open nicely and then attach them with Sticky Strip.
Here's a side view. I actually cut a hole in the front of my page protector so that you can look at the pictures in the panel without taking the whole page out of the protector. If you click on this photo you can get a more detailed view.
I used the Outline Alphabet set - stamped it in Purley Pomegranate ink and then colored it in with a VersaMarker - we learned this at convention last summer.
Thanks for looking!
