Friends Forever

My Mom and I made this page together.  It's about Mom's friend, Alice.  Last week I traveled to my Moms' and took her to lunch at the Tri-Towns Senior Center.  Mom knows everyone and everything about our small town, and saw lots of folks she knows.  The tables were full and all the folks ate everything on their tray.  The best part about that visit was that Mom's best friend Alice came too.

"Alice has been Mom's friend forever.  Her husband Steve was Mom's classmate and friend first.  Mom met Alice at PTA as the kids were close in age.  When Mom was pregnant with Amy our sister Terry was graduating high school  Steve kidded Mom about that.  Then it was Alice who was pregnant when her son graduated high school  Alice and Mom are pictured at the Tri-Towns Senior Center.  March 2015.  They love each other!"

Alice's husband Steve grew beets and Alice canned them.  The packet of beets on the layout was a picture from the internet.  The canning jar is a stamp, which we labeled "Steve's Beets".

Mom is actually more artistic than I am and she outlined the alphas with a purple design.  She also cut out the ephemera.
