Aunt Mary Lou and Earl lived only two hours away in Pennsylvania, so we had many happy visits from them over the years. But my maternal grandparents lived far away in California, which meant we saw them but rarely over the years. That makes this 1983 photo op, just after we had all returned from Easter Mass, pretty special.
Also worth noting is that Mom sewed my darling two-piece outfit.
I created this page for the “Frost the Cake” Paper Issues spring crop challenge, which required that we use stripes of either patterned paper or paint for the page’s background.
I used papers from the Simple Stories Faith and American Crafts Welcome Spring collections.
