Goodbye to Franzi

I went right to work on this layout, simply because my big triangle piece of patterned paper was already cut and sitting on my desk from some paper I had used last week.     Good thing I didn't put it away because it was the perfect colors for the layout.   I found some background paper that was perfect colorize and had a bit of a water wave look to it to go with the picture and then cut out the other two triangles out of Basic Grey Adrift collection and it all went together.

Now that I took the picture looks like I need to go back and move some of the alphas on the title to make it a little straighter.

This is a picture of Franzi and my grand daughters Avery and Dylan.    Then end of July was Franzi's last day as au-pair for the girls.   She was from Germany and the girls just loved her and will hated to see her go, they had a great year together.
