Love me, love my GRAMMA (CQC120)

Hi there! Hope you all are doing well :) It's time for another super-YUMMY color combination at ColourQ!! I am SO in love with these colors! Here is the palette:

cqc120
Do you LOVE this, too? Soooooo pretty! I knew it was not going to be a color combo for the boys pics. But I had been wanting to do a page or two about my sweet Gramma for awhile. My Gramma was such an amazing role model for me. She and my Papa lived down the street when I was growing up, and she watched us when my Mom worked. Now that I am a Mom, I feel so very humbled when I think of all the things they did for me, all the energy they invested in my upbringing. I was/am so very blessed! Here's the 2 page spread:


I found several pics from through the years. The one in the middle on the left page is my Gramma holding me when I was a newborn. :) 
I used a lot of my new goodies from The Cat's Pajamas! LOVE this new die, the Lacy Floral Die. I used it both as a mask for some spray ink, and adding the die-cut peeking out from behind the photo strips. I used the Circus Border CutUp for the trim pieces that I cut from some Rich Razzleberry colored DSP. I thought the Build-A-Bingo set would make cute accents for the pages, since I remember my grandparents playing board games with me for hours as a kid! Yahtzee, checkers, Bingo, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, you name it, we played it! :) Here's some more pics:

And here's a couple more shots of each page:




And, since I had everything out already, AND Gramma's birthday is in less than a month:
Well, that is all for me, today! I hope YOU can come join us for these lovely colors this week at the ColourQ! Would love to see what YOU'LL come up with!! Big hugs!!

I love the layouts you've created using these gorgeous colours Noelle especially the dotty ribbon border. The card you made for your Gramma is pretty too and it's lovely to hear how much you appreciate her.
