YJ's Smile


YJ's  Smile

Our Daughter Yvonne; taken October '09 as she took a week of her holidays to help her aging parents enjoy their favourite campsite; she drove us around; her sharp eyesight pointing out wildlife we might have missed; she pitched in with chores, cooking, dishes and kept her sunny nature throughout; although much like the Chaplin song depicted above "Smile tho' your heart is aching, Smile even tho' it's breaking etc...." She was hiding her deep hurt, as her husband of 10+ years had recently walked out.

Charley Chaplin got his start with a "Clog" group known as the Eight Lancashire Lads led by Wm. Jackson - my Grandfather - thus the nostalgia!

    Beautiful photo of your daughter, and lovely layout--I really like the circle path around her and over the music. Sad that she'd been left, but I bet she's going to land on her feet with such a great attitude!
    What a lovely photo. That is cool the way you have done that journalling. Wonderful that you had such a special time all together.
    Your extraction and blending come together well in this beautiful lo!
    A beautiful smile! I love that background paper, one of my favorites, and the journaling in the spiral, tool Great layout!
    Great photo and I love how you have designed your LO. What a special time for you to share and I am sure that it was a grateful distraction for your daughter. Love the song you used, all around lovely LO.
    Wonderful page! I really like how you put the text around the photo of your lovely daughter. It sounds like you shared some sweet times together.
    I love the way you used the sheet music in the layout. Sorry about your daughter's pain. I hope she is better now. Karen
    Oh so bitter sweet. What a lovely layout of your dd, and I'm so sorry for what she's going through. She seems like she's such a blessing to you all. Your layout is so beautiful and I love the blending on you photo and the sheet music in the background.
    This is really pretty. I love that song. So sorry your daughter is going through that.
    Nice extraction and blending. I love the sheet music addition and the journaling on the path.
