Journaling:

Glen W Shay was what youíd call a character. (The W doesnít stand for anything, by the way. Itís not an initial, thereís no period after it; itís just Glen W -- period.) I
asked the family to tell me about this picture. Dad said it was before his time, and his own knowledge of the story is sketchy, because Grandpa was a little touchy about talking about it.
What he does know is that the motorcycle was a Harley Indian, top of the line back in the day. Owen thinks the picture was taken going down Main Street in Belle. Sometime later Glen was running an errand and hit a chuck hole or pop bottle over by Ray Oliver's blacksmith shop. He took a rough fall, peeled his face and ended up in the hospital. No oneís sure what became of the motorcycle.

The guy who owned Sly's grocery store, where Grandma was the bookkeeper, said to her, "You're not planning on marrying that crazy so and so, are you?" Ha!



    What a neat LO! I like the stamped initials and the journaling is terrific. I especially like the torn paper with the patterned paper below.
    Love all the different embellishments. Gives the layout depth. This looks great.
    Left you some love at the other spot...and I'll say here...I think this is a fantastic layout. I love that picture!
    Your photo is awesome. I love the heritage feel to your whole layout. The antique type for your font is perfect, and the papers and embellishments all work together to give it that aged feel.
    Oh my gosh Bobbi! What a dynamite layout. The frame is absolutely perfect for the photo - which is certainly a treasure. Wonderful journaling. I love the whole thing.
    The photo immediately hits the eye but everything around it just sets it off beautifullly. The journaling is delightful.
    What an incredible photo and the style and color of the LO complement it so well! I love the story too! It's so expressive! This is what scrapbooking is all about! Preserving these memories so they are not forgotten. Beautiful!
    Love the way you have assembled all of the embellishments and framed the photo. The page definitely has an aged look giving the theme even more authenticity. What a wonderful story to preserve.
    Fantastic layout! The photo really captures the eye, but your journaling is what really makes this layout standout I think. I love how you embellished around the photo, it really makes the photo shine. Thanks for sharing this special memory with us!
