Shades of Green

The sweater Mom wears is her favorite shade of green.  She recalls the teal green coat her Mom bought her when she was a senior in high school"

"It was 1942 and we didn't have anything.  I was going to Midnight Mass at the Episcopal Church with a friend and she lent me a red hat.  I felt beautiful!"

74 years later-you're still beautiful!

The above layout is the 12 X 12 one I made for my collection.  Below is the 8 X 8 page I made for Mom.  It's a size she can handle!
