Remembering Good Times

Here is my DT reveal for Bird is the Word. Today's word is "TIME".
I used these pictures we took with the Hipstamatic camera on my mom's Ipad. We were just fooling around and having fun after downloading that application. These pictures were taken at my Grandmother's house right before my mom and uncle took her on her first cruise. When they came back, my grandmother needed a surgery and although we thought she was going to recover, things turned for the worse and she is now in the hospital hanging onto her life. I was going to make a layout of a picture I took that day of my grandmother and me, however I thought it was inappropriate because she looked so vivacious in the picture and now she looks so worn out. I decided instead to use these 3 pictures I took at her house and wait to use the other picture for another layout.
I used lots of prima goodies and some other beautiful embellishments I had. The banner is dusty attic and the flower flourish is from A to Z scraplets. I used gold crackled paint on the flourish to give it a distressed look. Look at the close-ups.
I also used the Prima BAP sketch for the month of December as an inspiration for my layout.
I know my post is a bit melancholic today but that is how I feel right now while my grandmother is in the hospital. I'm there all the time and don't have that much time for myself. The only things I am trying to do is finish all my DT's for the month because we are going away on vacation in two weeks.
I want to wish all my followers health and peace in their hearts!! G-d bless you all!!!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog
G-d Bless
