Pink mini for Sandy before Pics!

T his is a mini album I created for my sister, Sandy. I do this in tribute to her strength and courage as a Breast Cancer Survivor. I am posting it before pics because she and i will be working on adding pics together. That is also why I added so many tags so that all the pics we want can be included. I hope you enjoy!

My Grandmother

This is a layout I was going to do for a crop challenge on the Scrap Beach but couldn't put it together in time. I tired to do other photos with the chosen papers hoping to postpone this one of my Grandmother because quite frankly she and I just didn't bond. I think I was 7 or 8 when she died so I just didn't know a lot about her so I was dreading this page.

I loved her as my grandmother but we just didn't get to love each other

Requested information for my sister Donna

Mixed Blessing Box ingredients and symbols each stands for. The Ingredients are Pretzels, Bugles, Peanuts, candy corn and Orange slices. The Bugles are a symbol of the Cornucopia, a horn of plenty. The Pretzels represent arms folded in Thanks & Prayer. The Candy Corn reminds us that during the winter, the Pilgrims were allowed only five kernels of corn per day because the food was scarce. The fruit is a reminder that Thanksgiving is a celebration of the harvest. The Peanuts represent seeds, the potential of the bounteous harvest of the next season if they are planted and well tended.
