Write your story

I thought about my mother-in-law as I made this-- she was an author, and she inspired many others during her life as an English teacher and through her books-- most notably the first book which was a memoir... of sorts.  I've mentioned her many times, and her books a few times, but you can Google her if you are interested!  Jane Juska...

Anyway, we miss her.  She died in October. 


  • I had a few scraps of this Tim Holtz paper and I pasted Teresa Collins modelling paste through Tim's Typo stencil
  • Vintage Photo Distress Stain added to the bottom edge, and I blended it using a baby wipe.
  • Tim's Chit Chat stickers added and inked with Antique Linen DI
  • Tim's Photobooth gal added atop some 3M dimensional adhesive
  • The "memoir" Idea-ology nib affixed with Glossy Accents.  I usually use E-6000, but it was in the house as I was working.
  • Twine from my stash

I'd like to share this with the following challenges:
