The First Page

This is my first ever digital scrapbook page. This was a very difficult page for me to create. First, I had no idea what I was doing I just needed to make this page and used some stuff that was in my Photoshop program.

The other reason this was so hard for me is that this is a photo of my Mom, holding my son when he was about 3 months old. My mom died 3 years ago today.

I set a goal a few months ago to get just one page, of one photo completed before today. So here it is.

I tried to do some journaling but just couldn't find the words. Until this point I couldn't even sit down with photos to make an actual page. It was hard for me but I am so glad I finally did it. I need to gather some more photos (there aren't many, Mum never liked being in front of the camera) and make more pages. It will be good for me and I know that other family members will love to have copies. And someday I will be able to show the album to my son, so he can see his Grammy Elaine, who loved him more than anything in this world.

I miss you Mum.
