My parents and Make it Crafty

Hey everybody, its been a really long time since my last post.  I didn't want to wait any longer, so I'm doing this from my tablet.  Because of that I won't have any links, but you can find all but one digital image from the Make it Crafty store, www.makeitcrafty.com.

My parents are 83 years old and celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in October 2013.  I wanted to document moments in their lives with images I colored matched up with photos of them.  I used a 6 x 6 scrapbook kit.  The front page is an image by CCDesigns as this was a Christmas gift.
















 

In the first photo they are only 15 years old and are standing in front of their high school.  The next photo of them they are 18 and just married.  The next is a group photo of them with all seven of their children, the baby in my dad's arms is me.  The last photo I'm just finding out was taken about ten years ago so that would make them 73 years young.  Thank God, at 83 they are both still with us that's why the last page says To Be Continued.  As I find more images that go with moments in their lives I will add to it.

I hope you enjoyed another post about my parents.  Can you tell I love them dearly?  Have a beautiful weekend.  I'm trying to post more frequently, lol.  Thanks for looking in.  Hugs, Julie.
