This is a photo of my mom that I only got a copy of after her sudden passing on 12/7/12 at the age of 66. Even though this is not how she looked at the time of her passing, this is how I remember her growing up. As soon as I saw Lain's prompt for today, I knew that I would use this photo and which patterned paper I wanted to include. I did a lot of fussy cutting - something I don't usually do, and I wouldn't call this a fast layout by any means, but once I journaled my thoughts (which I did first) and pulled my supplies, it just came together. In memory of my mom, Dorothy Eileen Lorentz. Love you, Mom.
I'm hoping to pull a few more supplies together for another 'layout' responding to a prompt from Stephanie Ackerman's Scrapbook Life Journal before going to my in-laws for the annual Super Bowl party. Not a football fan myself, but enjoy the time with family and friends.
