Remembering Nainai

 

My grandmother (nainai) passed away peacefully last weekend.. she led a long, good and healthy life and I know she’s at peace now.

In the midst of the grief, she brought the family closer together – we remember her together, for all that she was all these years… A good mother, a fantastic care taker, a strong willed woman, a woman good with her hands. I did this layout today to reminsce the good times with Nainai and also to pen down a message I had for her.

Sketch & Journalling idea came along just at the right time – Once Upon A Sketch’s the women in our lives theme

My hidden journaling slotted into an envelope attached behind the photograph

GORGEOUS….& she is a really, really stunning looking lady, too. Hope I look like that when I get older!
