CSI Case File No. 43

Hi there all!
Today I want to share my layout for
CSI Case File No. 43.
 I really had fun creating this layout.
Check it out!!!!

The Case

My Layout Take
Title~My Mom

  Vintage Style

Picture Close View

This is my mom during her younger years.

Journal With Close View

The journal is hidden behind the picture.

 The Journal reads:

My mother was the first twin born in 1924
within the Johnson family in Pennsylvania.
From that time on Martha grew into this beautiful
young woman. She always dressed so pretty,
very gracious, quiet, and giving. Down through the
years, my mom continued to be a lady with a
beautiful persona. She had nothing but friends,
not one enemy. Everyone loved Ms. Martha and
could always keep a secret. She married my dad
and had 1 child; me. My mom taught me act like
a lady, keep a clean home, and care for others.
She continued being this perfect lady until poor
health took over. Everyone loved Ms. Martha.
I took loving care of my mom until she made
the transition to heaven in 2002. Even today
I have characteristics like Ms. Martha. I shall
never forget and always cherish my mom with
memories and love. Until we meet again,
love you momma.         2012
