A Family Moment Layout

Hello there!

I can't believe that summer is coming to an end for me. I go back to work next week. Although I am beyond thrilled about starting a new job, I'm going to miss these scraptastic summer days! I've been scrapping non-stop! Here is my latest layout for The Memory Nest.

This was the challenge:

This picture is from 1979. It is my mom and her sister sitting on her car during a trip to the mountains. We don't have too many family pictures like this so I wanted to do something special for it. I actually had my mom do the journaling for this layout and she told the story. It was also a great moment for the two of us to share and talk about the family.

I was so proud of myself when doing this layout because I actually mixed collections! That is definitely a weakness of mine. The background paper is actually from an Authentique Christmas collection. The wood buttons and some of the stickers are by My Mind's Eye and the rest is from the We R Antique Chic collection. And I am just loving those stitched Thickers lately!

Thanks for reading! Be sure to check out this summer challenge over at The Memory Nest. Leslie also has a new store up with great products and $5 shipping!
