Here's my layout in honor of my grandmother, Mary Ruth.

Journalling: In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Iíve made this layout of my Grandma Ruie. She has fought breast cancer three times in her life. Once when she was a young mother, once as a grandmother, and now as a great-grandmother. In the beginning, the only option was a mastectomy. The second time, when they removed the mass, they declared her cancer free. The doctors say that this last bought is really remnants from the first bought, a slow growing mass 45 years in the making. She had the mass removed, but has decided that, at her age, sheíll skip the other treatments. After all, it took 45 years to get to this point and her life is too busy to take the time right now.

    What strength your Grandmother has, Monica! And what a beautiful tribute to her you've created. Wonderful layout and may she continue her fight for many more years! Beautiful layout!
    What a lovely tribute to a gutsy lady! She is so lucky to have survived the first bout, but she clearly has the right spirit! I especially like the cluster around the photo.
    How wonderful is Grandma Ruie. It is great that she feels she has choices and is supported in all her glorious pinkness! I love your stacked cards behind the photo.
    Great journaling about your Grandmother's strength in facing her illness! I really like the stacked cards behind her photo too and the ribbon strip at the bottom of the page. Background paper is great too!
    Monica this is wonderful! I love that you included the sweet story of your grandmother. She made me laugh...it took 45 years to get her. What a strong lady! Great treasured memory! I really like the lifted layered papers under her photo. I like the texture of the "painted" background. Thank you for joining the challenge!
