4th of July was a very special holiday for my family this year. My grandma, who is 103 years old, was the Grand Marshall of the parade and my whole family came home to celebrate toghether! My parents always taught us how important it is to stay close to your family by having us get together as often as possible. There are about 30 of us when we are all together, but the mess and the cleanup is never a problem...the more the merrier! My mom is gone now, but my dad carries on the tradition and puts his whole heart into it! We don't all live in the same town, or even the same state, but when we get together, we are close as family can be...a precious gift!
I entered this layout in the November Doodle Challenge. I really love these challenges...they make me think outside of the box and bring something totally new and different to my layouts! Thanks, ladies, for taking the time to think of new challenges and for running the show!!
