Scrapbook LifeStyle NORA GRIFFIN challenge

the following is a layout that i did for the stamping challenge by Nora Griffin. the photos are from several visits with my aunt who is in a convalescent center because she has alzheimer's.the photos are of my aunt (which is my dad's older sister) and my mom (who is her sister-in-law) it was difficult to actually do the layout as it does bring up memories. she has always been and still is so sweet, she just doesn't always know us. the layout uses stamping on the layout and second-chance stamping where i stamped and cut out the images.

the layout consists of:
*bazzil cardstock & bazzil shaped cardstock
*daisy d's patterned paper
*making memories paint
*making memories brads
*random buttons from stash
*stamps are from autumn leaves, technique tuesday,justrite stampers & heidi swapp
i also stitched the pictures to the cardstock & have a secret journaling spot to hold a personal note

thanks nora for pushing me to new levels of scrapbooking & for doing a much needed layout to chronicle a remarkable woman in our family's life.
