I have spent the past year or so gathering up family photos, documents, etc. in order to create a album celebrating my parents lives. Dad passed in 2012 but Momma lives with us and we've been sorting photos, scanning documents and memorabilia, and laughing while she tells stories. I've also spent countless hours rummaging through the DD store looking at templates and products that would suit our story and style.
I was thrilled when Katie introduced the new "My Story" series in January! I've been itchin' to get started and this weekend I felt like everything was in place and ready. Momma has very definitive likes and dislikes. She also has strong opinions about how her story is presented. That said, we'll be using the My Series (although I'm already behind Katie's presentation) with a few embellishments and added color. Blues and soft florals for Momma. Masculine and bold for Dad. I'll probably go a little crazy now and again making sure that the pages flow and compliment one another. Bear with me and please jump in with suggestions.
