Black and White and Red All over--You've Come a long way Baby
Often we wonder what will be remembered about us. Will our family wonder what was important to us? So I decided to give a little help to those who might be curious. As I love to make mini books, I made one with the highlights of what shaped me--what influenced me, my experiences, homes, schools, and family, and what inspired me, my church and friends. Most of my work is in color, but to stretch my artistic boundaries, I decided to make this book in black and white, with just a few red highlights. I hope you enjoy this vignette of me.
The papers were from Jo-Ann's, and the border embellishments were from KC Company
Behind the shutters is a picture of four generations of hands from those of my littlest great-granddaughter to mine.
So from a log ranch house in the mountains of Wyoming to the suburbs of Phoenix, by way of Denver, and France; from a shy country girl to a successful business woman with a circle of family and friends I have come a long way.
