This is a weekend hop, but you have until Monday at midnight to finish hopping.

Welcome! You should have come from Cindy's Blog

For today's hop I created a couple of digital layouts.  It has been a while since I played with digital.  I used Artisan formerly Creative Memories software, therefore the kit I used was Creative Memories Gratitude.  I also used blueprints to start with I did change them up and copied elements to both layouts for continuity.  

The first one is my great grandmother, Bertha Lee Hooper.  She lived to be 104.  She got to meet my son before she passed, her second great!  The first photo has my grandmother as a child.  The second photo has two of my great grandmothers.  The third is my great grandfather and great grandmother's celebrating someone's 84th.  

This layout is is my mother's mother.  She passed away before I was born so I never knew her.  The top left photo is my grandparent's wedding day.  The bottom left has my mother as a child with all her brothers. I feel lucky to have these photos.  I have scanned them all for my family to share.

Thank you for joining us today and please continue on to
