A few years ago I created this "altered" book. It was one of two projects that I was asked to contribute for a book called, The Altered Book Scrapbook" by Susan Ure. I titled the project "Special Lady" in honor of my very sweet mother. Using a children's board book found on the bargain table at a book store, I created a wonderful memory of my own mother. It sits on display for anyone to enjoy the photo story of her life.
This evening we are going to be celebrating another "Special Lady" in our family. Today is the birthday of my mother-in-law, Marge. She turns 89 today! She is the mother of nine children, the grandmother of 21 and great-grandmother of 17. We celebrate her ... she is a Special Lady!
