Tribute to my Granny

Hi everybody,
It's Amy here with you today.
The month January is a month I'd like to forget.....on the 20th my husband's granny past away and in the same week on the 24th my own granny past away.
I never thought that it would happen so quickly.....so this layout I created as a tribute to a wonderful woman, great mother, funny grandmother and sweet great grandmother!
This is my first layout I have created since it all happened so that means I haven't scrapped in two whole weeks.......I'm so hooked that it gave me all kinds of weird symptoms ;-)
But I'm back in the game!! 

At her funeral I spoke with my heart to everybody that loved her, and it was a hard task I may say, but I did it and I'm glad.
On my layout there is a little part from that text, but sorry ya'll it's in Dutch and I'm not a great translator.
The papers I used are from Maja Designs "Vintage Spring Basics" it's such a great combination with Imaginarium Designs....

Beautiful Smile:
All the chipboard pieces I just inked......I took me forever to great this layout because I couldn't stop crying. Everything reminds me of her.
Here are a couple of close-ups:

She had the most beautiful smile ever and she was never cranky.
Sorry for the different colors I'm still having problems with blogger. These two pictures are more the right color as the ones above.
