Mom and Dad

I got up early this morning to create a little before going to work. I wanted to share the layout I made. These are pictures of my mom and dad in 1954. In the top picture he had just given her an engagement ring. It was the day after he came home from the Korean War. What a wonderful picture!! In both pictures my mother is wearing a dress, and I just love it!!

I used a sketch from Scrapbook Challenges to complete this layout. Products used are: TPC Studio paper, Prima flowers, CTMH Colonial White Ribbon, CTMH Bitty Sparkles, CTMH Waxy Flax, Making Memories pin, and Slice Design Card Think Pink. Because I've used flowers, I can also put this in the Practical Scrappers challenge.
