Scrapbook Layout about my mom from 2007

About the time my maternal grandmother turned 70, the extended family has tried to gather in late January to celebrate her birthday. This photo shows grandma with 1 of her brothers and her 4 surviving children taken at her last birthday gathering to celebrate #93!!! She lived until 23 days before #94...However I've scrapbooked this because next weekend my siblings and I will be hosting an open house to celebrate our mom's #80!!! Goodness, the years are going quickly.

My mom's favorite color is blue, so my compiled November kit for CKC blog has worked out well for focusing on old snapshots that include my mom.

tried to focus on blue-gray, gray, yellow/beige

Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog's inspiration kit for November 2019 shown with a bold dark palette or the light tonal version pulled from Scrapdelight Scrapwinkel's Winter kit=

and here's what I compiled together for my copy-cat November kit:

From the above photo of the kit, I used 2 butterflies similar to those shown...

And from the below kit photo, you can see the blue cardstock base and the blueish gray patterned cardstock coordinating prints:

Next are some cropped scanned close-ups of the layout to see the details:

Another challenge blog to link this layout's full page scanned photo to is:

a. Use Your Stuff [mood board photos as challenge(s) prompts]...I've focused on the color mix

I'll also share this on my personal profile page on Facebook, of course!

I've got lots to do before November 30th celebration for my mom! 2 days of teaching, keeping tabs on my hubby :) and more ….
