Deck of Me- Week 15: Parents

For Emily's Challenge the theme this week is "Parents" and I made my first scrapbook card! I can't believe how quickly I got it done. My paintings usually take me anywhere from 3-10 hours. This was done in about 30 minutes! Woohoo. I might have to scrapbook more often. Plus it was so fun using a photograph of my parents. Someone snapped this of them smooching at my mom's door in college (at least that's what I remember). It's my most favorite picture of them in the world. I did a charcol of this for their 25th anniversary when I was in high school.

To me, my parents represent love and commitment. They have been through some very rough things and have grown together instead of apart. I'm so proud of them and love them. I'm thankful for their example. It has been such a blessing to me in my marraige.
A few months ago Seth leaned down to give me a kiss before we were leaving on a date and just before he did I saw our camera on the edge of the desk next to us. I quickly grabbed it and snapped this of us (lucky shot, we weren't cut off). I wanted to have a fun picture like my parents.
I beaded the little flower border and found an old broach and attached it to it. My mom loves old stuff and has a jewelry box filled with old costume jewelry I use to always play in. The little flower by my mom's ear is a left over from my wedding veil that my mom sewed.
