Mum in 1962

I have been making a real effort lately to
get some unfinished projects done.....


This layout was a class with my
gorgeous friend Sue, when we both worked at
Scrapbooks From The Heart.....



The class was about a year and a half ago.....
Neither of us works there anymore,
and the layout was condemned to the
'will finish it one day box'.....


That day finally came, last week.
I put the finishing touches to the layout and
added this beautiful photo of my Mum.....




The photo was taken when I was about
three weeks old
- doesn't Mum look fab.....



That's Dad's arm around her in the photo
- I will scrap the whole photo -
and I'm also in the photo.....
But, I wanted this layout just of Mum.....



Loving all the detail in the layout,
Sue believes in lots of layering and dimension.....



I miss her classes, but we get to
scrap together a couple of times a month.....



We have what we call FTPs
- Finish Those Projects -
we're not allowed to start anything new,
and it's working - we are getting through
some layouts that haven't seen the
light of day for months, if not years.....


So, I have quite a few of these FTPs done
(and ready to post) and quite a few still to be done.....
Watch this space for more FTPs.....
Hugs

Hi Jane, This layout is absolutely beautiful. I love the simplicity with the neutral colouring and a splash of pink - then all the added layering and dimensions really give it that wow factor. I love it. Take care - we must talk soon. Luv Tereesa.

Jane,
It is incredible! I love this photo and can't wait to see the rest of it . . . but I totally see why you wanted just your Mom for this page - it's wonderful. Gosh, I'm glad you finished this project!

Hugs!
