Tuesday Challenge 9/18/17: Story Ali AVG

Oops!  Just had to repost this as I realized a wordart was missing, I must have posted the wrong copy.  :hit-head-with-hammer:
So now I come back a few hours later and see I have TWO layouts posted here, Grrrrrr..   Took me awhile to figure out how to delete just one and not the whole thing.   Hopefully is ok now....  (Believe it or not, took another THREE tries before I got it right! :banghead: )
Journaling reads:
"When my Great Auntie Anne died, Mom inherited some of her jewelry including this pin with her initials for “Anna Veronica Grande”.  It sat in Mom's jewelry box for over 20 years until after my Mom’s death when I picked it up and was amazed to realize, “AVG”, my niece’s initials!!!   Alison Victoria Gibson was born after my Mom received the pin, so the initial connection was never made.  Alison was very pleased when I surprised her with the pin at lunch one day.  It looked beautiful on her and I know Auntie Anne would be happy she has it.
From the Tutorial I used:  
The Bare Minimum, Word Art, Little Tidbits and A Page of Prose.
 
For this layout I used: 
SNU SS DLO Template: One Word  
AFT A Mother’s Love Collection Super Mini & 2
AFT SS Paper Templates: Pleasure Masks
and my own photos

I love this...she is so happy and what a special gift to get. That is amazing that her initials are the same and no one picked up on that till then. I love the way you have arranged the photos with the pin being the center and title. Such pretty colors too. She has a lovely smile.

What a wonderful bit of family history to pass on - Alison will treasure this.

Your photos are beautiful, and your presentation is outstanding - I love the background you chose.

Gorgeous page! I love all the soft colors and blending and sweet embellishments, especially the bit of jewelry hanging from one of the photos. Wonderful story, too. Allison looks so happy to have received that treasured pin.

Such a beautiful girl and layout. Worth re-posting. :)  I re-posted once or twice because I corrected a typo. It just does it. :)
