In loving memory of Mrs Monique Parker

Today would have been my Mother-in-laws B-day!  It's her 1st birthday since her passing... and well she's really missed...

We lighted up a candle in her honor and shared some loving memories of her.  So many!!!  Here's her picture.
Just had to do a post to say how much I miss her, she was such an inspiration!!!!

I made a little card that reminded me of her.  I used the wonderful digi 1300 Vintage family group from Create with TLC because well she was a huge pilar to her family!  And she was soooo happy to be surrounded by her kids and grandkids.
I kept this card really CAS because I wanted the focus to be on the image and the sentiment.  To age those I used my word software.  I used paper from Studio Calico from American Craft.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I used vintage photo on the edge. 

I used a wonderful sentiment from A Piece of Heart, she has wonderful freebie sentiment and this one was just perfect for this occasion!!!  You should go and check her out.
To make this card I followed this sketch:
