Amanda Taylor's January submission

Every day with a Great Grandparent is a Celebration


hi Shazza, here is my layout using the 'renoir' painting 'luncheon with the boating party'...................i loved that painting, and the added criteria, i chose to use a photo of my boys meeting their great grandfather(my grandfather) for the 1st time in a long time, and that when a great grandparent gets to be in their 80's and beyond then really every day with them is a celebration, and a milestone not to be overlooked......................ive got a celebration pic, more than 3 people in the pic and my food is the icecreams that the boys are eating and even included an ice cream stick pin..................thanks, hope you like this
