Color Challenge

The Color Challenge was Turquoise, Orange, & Purple for Scrapbook Challenges (http://scrapbookchallenges.ning.com/). I also used this LO for a Family Word in Title Challenge for Scrappin'-n-Chattin' (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scrappin-n-chattin/).  Now to describe the LO! These are my maternal grandparents. The journaling in the "forever" block has on it: "I'm not sure when the picture of Papa was taken. The picture of Grandmama was taken in 1997 for Woodard's Pond CC Church Directory. Papa died May 2004 and remains forever in our hearts!" The journaling under the tractor tells that "Papa loved to work in his garden with his tractor!" The quote in the right hand bottom corner is "if you begin the day with love in your heart, peace in your nerves, & truth in your mind, you not only benefit by their presence but also bring them to others, to your family and friends, and to all those whose destiny draws across your path that day." (author unknown) Papa was a preacher and I'm sure he prayed every morning before he began his day! The blue block on the right at the bottom tells that "Grandmama loves flowers! Her yard is full of azalea bushes, rose bushes, pansies, and other flowers! She has a small vegetable garden as well!" Above the orange flower is pointing to the heart with baking measurements written on the heart, because "Grandmama also loves to cook and bake. Her pound cake is a fave among the entire family!"  I don't have a picture of them together other than ones I have already scrapped! I'm going with my mom to see her tomorrow. We're gonna get some pine straw out of her yard for my mom's flowerbed and spend some time with her. I'll probably vacuum her house while we're there. She can't do much cleaning since her back surgery. We're leaving around 8 in the morning. I've got to try to go to bed soon. She just lives in Little Washington, so we'll be back home in time for supper. Please don't forget about my Christmas cards! I really want to sell them if at all possible! Thank a soldier today or veteran since it is Veteran's Day tomorrow! Today is US Marine Corps' 235th Birthday! Have a great weekend!
