Grandparents Page...

There has always been a set of people that have meant the world to me, that are amazing, that have been there and supported me, and have always made my feel like a million dollars... these people are my grandparents!!! They have been sooo meaningful to me in my life, I honestly have no idea where I would be without them. I grew up about 5 minutes away from them, and they were at EVERYthing I did or was apart of growing up. They were always positive and showed their constant love for me. It's only been a short time since I lost them, and they still mean just as much to me. I'm glad that two of my kids got to grow up knowing them. Even better, we got to live in their house for almost a year and bring home our baby girl to the house when she was born...

At Practical Scrappers blog, the theme of the day was about Grandparents.. celebrating the upcoming Sept 9 National Grandparents Day.. I miss mine so much, but am soooo grateful that I got to know them, and have them in my life for so long.

Here is my page, it's a photo taken back in 2007, my mom, my grandparents, and two of my sisters:
I used Echo Park's Note To Self line, which is a perfect line for the title itself. I added some ribbon pleating and sewing:
some fun embellishing:
and some diestressing, and then some journaling about how amazing my grandparents were:
I know they watch over me, and I miss them alot. Make sure to tell your grandparents that you love them, and give them a big hug!!!!
