Mim and Lala....

Thursday, November 29, 2012

At The Paper Mixing Bowl there was a layout challenge based on Thanksgiving leftovers.  There was a whole "menu" of requirements. Sounds interesting, doesn't it?  Well, I was intrigued, and this is what I came up with.
The main ingredient needed to be brown and white. I used a real feather and stick for the "Elements from Nature" requirement. And stamping met a requirement too. My journaling prompt started out as being "outdoors", but I wrote more about the elements and her nickname.  Which is cool with me, :) I did manage to get some handwriting in there.  Which I hate doing. :( So that fit a requirement too.

If you're curious, it reads:
In 1966, Mildred E. Norton (My great-Grandmother) and Clara Baals, her younger sister, stopped along the road to Passion Play to pose for a photo taken in a Grapefruit Orchard.  Although her name was Clara, her family called her “Lala”.  (Her friends called her “Billie”, but that’s another story)  And Aunt Lala refered to Mildred as, “Mim”.
