Phew..... it was quite a job to get this layout finished. Heritages pages are so beautiful, but it's so hard to make them. I spend three evenings creating this layout, but it was fun! The story:

When I see this photo I get happy thoughts. It’s a picture of my grandparents, my mother, uncle and their little dog Pinkie in front of their house in Eindhoven. My mom is wearing her beautiful knitted red dress, which my grandpa loved. This was such a happy time.

In 1962 my grandpa would pass away at the age of 48. My grandma had to raise six children on her own. My mom who was 13 and the eldest child helped her a lot. Not only did she loose her dearly beloved father, but also a piece of her childhood.
