DCWV Autumn Melody

"Family Traditions"
I wanted to capture the magic that was so evident in the photo where my grandson is reading to my mother,
his great-grandmother.
There will only be so many moments like this in
this lifetime.
Hayden had been reading at a very high level for some time, but my mother had never had the opportunity until last November to sit down and share a book with him. I know she loved it, having read to me and my sister, and then to my children from the time we were all very young.
At only 6, he was reading at a third grade level!  He has since started second grade this year, and is in a Gifted Program, so I'm sure he will be passing us all up and reading everything he gets his hands on now!
These DCWV papers are so gorgeous to work with!
Fall colors with a touch of elegance...
The gold foil on the leaf pattern paper is my all-time favorite for this time of year!
Even in small amounts die cut, border punched, or as trim, this paper steals the show!
The coordinating stickers make putting together a finished layout a breeze!
My banners have a beautiful sheet music print and comes in the stack, too!
I only wish my photos would do it justice.
My mother hates photos of herself, but I have a  feeling she'll
make exceptions for this one!
Please leave a comment so I know you've been here!
I love reading them and returning the favor by going to your blogs and seeing
your own creations!
Thank you, too, Fiskars, Spellbinders, and Prima
for their amazingly wonderful products!

When I saw the layout on the DCWV blog, I thought it was a grandson and grandmother. Upon visiting your blog, I see that isn't the case but instead, it's a picture spanning 4 generations. That's quite a special thing. Nice work!

Such a gorgeous layout Jan! And special too, showing the love of a grandchild with great-grandmother and a love of reading... both treasures :)
