These are the moments I want to remember. This is what it’s all about.
How lucky am I to be staying at Grandma’s house and playing cards every night? At 84 years young my grandparents are living on their own 8 hours away from our family. They contribute to their community and go back and forth to their cabin. It’s amazing and I am so grateful for their health. So, when visiting Grandma’s house, I can’t help but feel like I want to freeze time. In some way, memory keeping does just that – allows me to just freeze time. To document this memory, I printed the photo in black and white. It just felt right. Using the Stampin’ Up! Hand Penned Designer Series Paper, I cut two squares and halved them into triangles in order to anchor to photo. The Blossoms in Bloom die cut was a perfect backing to the photo but it required two die cuts. The Hand Penned Memories and More card pack already had the same colour combinations so I used the “Today’s Events” sticker to use as a title on this layout. One of the best things about Stampin’ Up! is that there is a consistency in colours. Because I used the Hand Penned Suite, it allowed me to limit my supplies to the suite but also that it coordinated. This makes for easy creating.
Thanks for hanging out with me! Hope you are enjoying the sun!
