Bitten by the Bug 2's Celebrating Grandparents challenge

Hi there and welcome to my project for Bitten by the Bug 2's Grandparent challenge.  I have created a layout of my grandmother.  She is/was one of my heroines.  She did so many brave things in her lifetime.  One of the first was to continue high school despite the fact she married.  It was war and my grandfather was over seas, so she continued her life as usual including participating on the girl's basketball team.  She said she was booed for being a married woman continuing school and continuing sports.  Shocking for the early 40's I suppose.  I always loved that story.
