Memories of Gram

Hi all,
Thank you for continuing to stop in through my blogging break.
I'm hoping to get back to my stamp room tomorrow, but until then, I thought I'd share the memory boards and some of the layouts I made as a tribute to my Gram.

I made two memory boards where I included pictures of Gram from a young lady and bride to a Great Gramma.

My friend Catherine has just released a book called "Life Scraps", her style of scrapping through story telling has really inspired me. With that in mind, I made a few layouts to tell some of my most treasured memories of Grandma. If you are a scrapbooker or had been and felt overwhelmed, I encourage you to check out Life Scraps!

This was a wonderful journey for me, to remember my Gram the way she was before Alzheimer's. It was a therapeutic process that made me laugh & cry. I have quite a few more stories to tell, maybe I'll share them down the road. These may not be the prettiest layouts I've made, but they are by far the most meaningful! My Gram will live on through generations because of these pages. What a wonderful hobby and gift for my family.

These sure are a treasure for you and your family Maureen. What a great way to remember your Gram and with these pages done your children and their children will "know" her too when they are older. I am happy to "see" you back on SN. :)
