DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge, August 2018

Daddy was such a good sport letting me bathe him in my new
baby doll's bathtub I got for Christmas 1962 at Pop and Grannie's.
     Today I have a layout for the Stack-a-holic Challenge over at DCWV. I used the Country Floral stack to create my layout. You can vote for your favorite layout here:
I wish I had made my blue squares and rectangles bigger. I think it would balance better with the size of my photographs. I'm sharing it anyway.

     I love the memories this page brings to my mind. I had so much fun with Dad in my early years. We came back around to each other a few years before he died.

     Hope you are having a great day! Thanks for stopping in.

     Here's a copy of the sketch we had to work with. I'll use it again.

Ironing Board Pops

    Today, I have a layout to share with you. And, a little bit of my heart.
         That's my mom there in the picture taken back in 1968. I now have the ironing board in the picture. It has a warp on the surface. It makes a loud pop every time I press with more than the slightest pressure. Ah, but it makes me happy! It brings back such sweet memories from when I was a little girl playing at her feet while she ironed.
     I wrote about "our" ironing board in a story for Angels on Earth magazine. I worked and worked to get a clear enough picture so that you could read the story here, but I was not successful. If you would like to read the story, you can read it free online here.
