Memories

I'm just going to pop in real quick tonight to show you a page I just scrapped about my grandparents. My grandfather passed away last week and so I was inspired to scrap this page about my grandparents. My grandmother passed away 14 years ago. They were married for over 60 years! They had 6 children and from those 6 children: 22 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren!
My Journaling:
Even though my grandparents are gone now, they left such an amazing example of how a simple Christian life and marriage should be lived out that even in my life today I can apply those simple truths to my life. Examples of hard work, dedication, service, honesty, steadfastness, gentleness, trusting in God, not complaining or gossiping, etc.. These are the things I remember about my grandparents and I pray that I will take their example and apply it to my life, daily.
Love - Matthew 22:37




Thankfully I had these pics scanned in from an album I did awhile ago (I'll have to show that to you another time). I used a template from an upcoming template set that will be coming out this Thurs. (I guess this is your little sneak peek for this week) and then a kit from Julie Bullock called Vintage Treasures (Beautiful by the way and perfect for a page like this!)

I won't be doing a giveaway on the blog this week but I will have one over at Scrap Orchard and probably DST later on tomorrow sometime. I'm still getting back to normal around here after traveling for the funeral this weekend. I'll let you know on my facebook when I have those posted so that you'll have a chance to wint my 2 NEW template sets.

Sorry again about your grandfather Liz. I lost mine a year ago, sadly, I never got the chance to know him like you did with yours. I'm glad you scrapped a tribute page, it gave me the idea to scrap about my grandfather and how I wish I knew him better. It's truly a gorgeous layout!!

((hugs))
