Ins(paper)ation: memory layout

Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose. Kevin Arnold

Time is the greatest inspiration of all. It teaches us things that we didn’t know, it helps us forget what we don’t need and it gives us a wonderful present: memories. Today I want to share with you a nostalgic layout. This layout is with a photo of my grandma and mom when they were both much younger. This is one of my favorite photos to scrap and I have made a few layouts with it already.

The photo was an inspiration as well, not only in the sense of the colors and theme of the lo, but also in the main feature of the lo: the crochet. Crochet has always reminded me of my grandma and mom. I remember the crochets in my grandma’s leaving room and I remember my mom sitting on the couch making them.
I love making crochets myself. I can sit for hours making up patterns. I really love the combination of paper and crochet in my lo.
