The challenge was to use hand stitching on a scrapbook page and I thought, who better to scrap than my grandma...the journaling is difficult to read but says "Grandma Rhynes taught me to embroider when I was about 10. She made me flannel nightgowns at Christmas and dresses, and used the scraps to make quilts. Fun to see in the quilts later." I don't generally like putting my handwriting on a page but I know it's better if you do...I fell in love with this layout and had to 'scraplift' from Robin at Creating Memories...One Moment at a Time.

long time ago! I copied the photo on vellum and then ran it through my printer again for the journaling. I used Stampin' Up DSP called Raspberry Tart and I just love the Kiwi Kiss ribbon. I added the smaller photo of my mom holding me and my dad holding my brother who is 11 months older than I am...gives you more of an idea of the family dynamics. I also have a younger brother but he wasn't around in 1952! Thanks for looking...

Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop Challenge - Sketch Challenge #035

I love the sentiment of this Skipping Stones Design set, Healing Wings, it feels so comforting to me and is perfect for a sympathy card.

SSD Sketch Challenge #035
SPCC #58- Color Challenge - Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Certainly Celery
I ran across this coffee flavor DSP on an old scrapbook calendar stuck in my closet and knew I just had to use it for this set 'Funny Coffee Volume 1'. I was going to save it for another sketch challenge since I had used Healing Wings for this sketch challenge already, but the color challenge over at SPCC (Scrapmasters Paradise Color Challenge) was calling out to me. This set has some really cute sayings and images (as do all of the SSD sets), this one just happened to fit with the challenge...go check out the store.http://skippingstonesdesign.com/products-page/
