This was one spread that should've probably had two separate spreads. I don't know if I just wanted to get passed the services for my mom here or if I really didn't realize until too late that there was too much for it all to fit into one spread. But that's ok. I used one picture for the title card and put an insert in. ;)
Here's one with the insert flipped:
So on the left we have:
-title card, with pic of son packing the car to leave for summer camp drop off, and my prayer reminder card attached. We tried to cover the kids at camp in prayer 24 hours a day each day they were there.
- a pic my son's counselor sent of him in the pool at camp and one of his cabin friends
-a pic of the long drop off line for the camp buses and the sad, crying sister who already misses her brother right after drop off
-the two pics at the bottom are from my son's birthday party, the day before he left for camp. It was TMNT themed.
The insert front side had pics of a school shopping date I took my youngest daughter on while brother was at camp.
The back side of the insert has pics of the tired son and daughter the day he returned from camp and we took them straight up to Grandma and Grandpa's for the memorial service. The youngest kid was wide awake and making faces at us.
The right side of the layout has all pictures from my mom's service. There were less than two weeks between when she chose to discontinue treatment and went Home. We had J's birthday, the next day he left for camp and she died that night. The day he returned we informed him she died while he was gone and we left straight up the state for the memorial service the next day. Her cemetary burial was a different day due to a lack of Saturday availability.
I put in a program but it was too tall, so I turned it sideways and secured the little extra sticking out with washi tape. There is a family pic of my dad and his siblings from the night before the service. Then a pic of her pictures and flowers (in the santuary, not the main collages in the fellowship area), and pics of the kids and grandkids with my dad.
The next week has her burial and I can be passed this part of the summer. It was hard to get these memories in here, but theraputic as well.
