Scrapbook Challenge-May 5-May 15!

The challenge this week included scrapping a special person. Well. that's easy. I love my Mommy and she's one of my most-very-special people. She's going to be 80 this June and I am doing an album for her. I thought it was going to be a mixture of traditional and digital scrapping, but as of last night, I'm pretty sure it's going to be mainly digital. I went to a crop last night and, maybe it was because I was exhausted from the week but, I couldn't crop for my life. I struggled and struggled and was able to ALMOST finish one 8x8 page in 4 hours. I kid you not. I was sooo disappointed. But when I started talking about it with my crop-divas, they said maybe it was a sign that this album is supposed to be digital. So maybe it is. I have found that I need to work on my embellishments. I tend to forget them when I'm doing digi.
I am so proud of all of these. They're done very simply with MS PowerPoint. That's Mommy, almost 80 years ago above and Mommy and Daddy in 1989 below. Ain't he a cutie?!?!? (miss you Daddy) They are my pride and joy. They were married for 47 years when he died. They were the epitome of love and honor and share and committment and companionship and partners. What a wonderful example.
This.................is the greatest place on Earth. Mommy lives there now, but it was the land our cabin was on for 45 years before she and Daddy built their retirement home there. Yes, that's an bald eagle AND a family of loons. Mommy's kept "ice in and ice out" and "loon watch" for the last 49 years and more recently "tumpeter swan watch" and "eagle watch". All that means is that she has the records for the DNR for our little lake. Basically that is the view from her dock. Now ya know why I think it's the greatest place on Earth???

So, that's my contribution to the Scrapbook Challenge-May 5-May 15! Now I'm actually excited about getting back to the project to see what I'm able to come up with since I've decided to stick more with digi.
Love and Blessings.

Great tribute pages. Maybe you could just add a swirl or little flower to them, it doesn't have to be anything big!

I really love that bottom "view from the dock" page! Terrific!!

And woohoo we were both NOT slackers this week! lol
