Authentique Grace & Strong | Mid Week Mojo Aquamarine #9

Aquamarine - Week 9 of 10

New to Mid Week Mojo? Get started here!

When you walk into my parents' house you see two photo walls. One is for the future (all of the grand kids) and one is for the past (their parents and grandparents). I am always struck by the two photos of my grandparents on my dad's side of the family. From 1926, these are photos from the year when they first met. The Grace & Strong Collections from Authentique are the perfect collections to create this week's Mid Week Mojo.

Here is the layout of my grandpa:

My grandpa dabbled as an actor before he settled down and met my grandma. As the story goes he worked with Jack Benney. There is a movie out there staring my grandpa, we can't find it, but we will. This was his head shot as he tried to get work. Then he met my grandma.


I used the same sketch to create this layout of my grandma. She was a costume designer and that is how they met. Soon after meeting they both gave up the glamorous life of acting/costume designing and started their little family.

Here is the sketch:

All of the pieces included in this kit makes for dozens of embellishments, with tons to spare. Make tons of layouts, cards and more with these kits.

Mix and match the stickers with the papers and die cuts, the colors all match perfectly.

Use pop dots to add layers to your creations (as usual).

The Grace collection is so pretty and romantic. Mix and match items from this kit as well, there is even a 6x6 pad included!
