I should have scrapped this special photo ages ago!!!! When I saw Challenge # 73 - "I remember" over at ScrapFIT I immediately thought of this photo of me, my Mom and grandparents taken in 2001. Poppy passed away in 2002, and I miss him every day. My sweet Gran who is 82 has really not been well the last year or so, and it breaks my heart. They both did so so much for us as kids growing up. My Mom was a single parent, and they picked up a lot of the slack. Poppy taught me how to drive, and he gave me away at my wedding. They were/are very special grandparents, and I hope to be able to be as great a grandparent to my own grandkids one day!!!
I also signed up for my first class, it's called Trendspotting, and is being hosted by Lisa Truesdell and Kelly Noel over at Studio Calico. I must say I totally love both of these ladies styles of scrapping so I was super excited when I saw they were hosting a class together. I used a few techniques that are going to be taught in this class. With the class you get a bunch of gorgeous cut files, the banner and triangles are both from the class!!
I hope you all have a wonderful week. It's going to be a great one for us in the Sharp household. It's a nice short week, and we are visiting family down the coast!! :)
