I Wonder...Layout

My scanner never get the real colors of my layouts, but hopefully soon this is going to change
because I will buy another printer.
This is a simple layout focused on journaling and picture, what telling your story should be, right?
Still hard for me to do these layouts about dad, I always cry, but it is necessary, I'm trying to go deep in my memory and begin to build this archival because I do not have many things other than my memory, some pictures back in Brazil but not a whole lot..and some of them as some of you know mom destroyed...

This picture could be 2 layouts that maybe I will do later, with some more from this trip, that is a very important set of photos when my dad did this international big trip, that my sister was able to take without my mom gave it a finish...
I can remember like today he saying to me, that this picture was in Germany, and he was holding my gift that in the time was a tape recorder something really fancy for 80's. :)

Are you recording your memories ? Think about that today , if you not a scrapper, write them down, because this is your story in this lifetime so you should leave your mark !

Thanks for the comments and for you visit !

This is a beautiful layout, even before I read what you had to say, I knew it was a personal and loving story you had to tell. My heart goes out to you, for I understand your pain since I have lost both of my parents I feel like an orphan. If it wasn't for my husband, children and now a grandchild, I would be lost. Take care of yourself, it won't be long now until you get to hold your baby in a new and loving embrace with your husband!

This is so beautiful and emotional. I was crying when I read your page, really. I have lost my father 4 years ago and I still miss him a lot and it still hurts.

I love your page and I admire you for taking such a good care of your memories and for writing the family history for your son. You're fantastic! :)

Many hugs,
Mada
