This a layout for my book of me. Thanks to Char for hosting the BOM challenge. I didn't put a title the page I thought it would be too much, plus my "title" is in the lyrics to the song I found.
My grandmothers were a very large part of my life along with my mom. They truly are where I come from.
The first picture is the only one I could find of me and my Grandma Bates, she didn't do pictures much! I was 18 in that picture.
The lyrics to the song are.
These are the faces in Photographs
Heads all held high
Not afraid to look life in the eye
They are women with backbone
Keepers of the flame
With a spirit even hard times couldn't tame
These are the women I come from
The faith that sustained them is bred in my bones
I know what I'm made of and where I belong
'Cause these are the women I come from
They were lovers of babies and lovers of God
With lessons and laughter in their songs
Did they dream better dreams for their children
As they prayed silent prayers in the night
“Lord, make their way clear and always be near”
‘Cause these are the women I come from
This is also for the Hoarding Challenge. Have had those metal words forever!!
