Sweet and Simple

My MIL passed away about a month ago. She was a unique character! She had a good life and got an enormous amount of happiness out of the simplest things. She wrote a story 50 years ago, about learning to cook. So funny! It was read at her funeral. Everyone laughed and cried.  
I created this layout for my Grandson's scrapbook. I included the story she wrote and a note telling about some of my memories of her. She loved antiques and every piece of furniture had a Doily on it. I used my Cheery Lynn Design Die's to make a little Doily and some leaves. I added some flowers and a Quote..." It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all." -Laura Ingalls Wilder-  I thought that was perfect for my MIL.
 Frosted Designs is having a Blog Hop! After you hop around, you will need to do a project using this Quote. There are quite a few awesome prizes. You might want to check it out!
