finished Michelle's album..

Michelle is my sis-in-law who passed away almost 2 years ago. After her passing my bro-in-law gave me a stack of pictures. I hadn't been able to look at them until now. So, I made a book for her...and here are just a few of the lo's for it.



this one tells the story she told us of how they met...Gordon was still with his previous girlfriend, but Michelle told us she would look at him and think "someday, Gordon, someday" The lo was done as part of a progressive challenge on Scrapbooks.com.






Another progressive challenge layout..used tissue paper to make the flowers.

I did a lot of my lo's while at a crop, then I picked up this picture of their shadows and the heart...it is my fave pic and nothing I did at the crop felt right.




This is a complete lift from a lo I saw in the Scrapbook.com gallery...Karen W.'s Grow... you should check out her gallery... simply gorgeous.



And though this is not the final page in the book it is the last one done, for the Build it Bingo challenge.



















I'm not sure what to do with the book. We are in the midst of this crazy move, so I don't think Gordon wants it now. But I'll let him know and let him decide if he wants it or not... we will see.

Hi. Thats a nice memorial album you made. My nephew was killed in July of 2007 and I've taken out the photos of his services, etc. and both times had to put them away....can't scrap when you're dropping tears on stuff. Maybe next time.
