School Days

This is a layout I did for the Book of Me. It is my third grade photo and class photo. The journaling reads:  Third grade with Mrs. Jones
My teacher for third grade was Mrs. Jones. She lived a block away from the grade school I went to. One night in the spring her house caught fire during the night. She, her two sons and her husband all got out safely. But what an opportunity to teach a class of third graders about what to do in case of a fire. She walked us over to her house, and of course only saw the house from the sidewalk. At that time they still had the fire boxes on utility poles, that you would break the glass and the alarm would ring at the fire station and they knew what area you were in. She went over everything we needed to do in case of fire. Yes what an impression she made on us I still remember that walk, and seeing the ashes and the scorched roof. Thanks for the memories Mrs. Jones.

I honestly remember that so well but can not tell you who any of these kids are! LOL!
Thanks for looking!

My Grandmother

This a my maternal grandmother at about age 18. This photo was probably taken around 1926. I did scrap the original photo.  I did not realize that today is the anniversary of the day she left this earth. I continue to miss her.
This is a scraplift of a page done by Lisa Valentine and a kit purchased at Miss Art's. The papers are Prima, flowers are Petaloo, butterfly is Recollections, the key is We R Memories. Thanks for looking!

Mom & Me

These are photos of my Mom & I in 1949 in the front yard of my grandmother's home. I edited the B&W photos in PSE9 and ended up with sepia tone as I felt it softened them a little. I used Webster's Pages patterned paper. TFL

New Challenges

Here's the layout I did for the new Double page scraplift challenge over at STM.  This layout is about the musical the second and third graders at Maggie's school did for their holiday play. It's Christmas, Carol is a variation of the well known production of the same name. This was inspired by a sketch by Allison Davis.  I was so proud as Maggie sang a solo called Nobody Cares About Me.
