Family is a special word that means more then those that are actually related to us. It is a word that means those that are close to us. Those that are there for us when we cry or laugh and just want to talk. Families are special and this is a special time to be thankful for our family be it big or small, near or far. Please join our crafters as they celebrate families through their creativeness and love.
Here is my idea of FAMILY...
This is a layout I made of our Thanksgiving, 2008. One of our neighbors had just been diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, and was scheduled for a mastectomy the day before Thanksgiving. We knew her and her family were going to have to blow off Turkey Day that year, and me and some other neighbors wanted to do something about it.
So the day before her surgery (which was actually two days before Thanksgiving) we had a huge feast. I cooked and another neighbor hosted. Our kids, neighbors, and a few close friends were there for a celebration of life, love, and thanks. And PS...my neighbor came through it all like a champ. She's one of the strongest people I know.
Recipe: most of the items on this layout are card stock and scraps from my stash. The photos were matted with a really pretty paper bag from a scrapbooking store...yes, I know it's probably not acid free, but I'll take my chances...and I also have multiple copies of the photos just in case!
Thank you for stopping by today and now please continue on to Lucy's fabulous creation!
