When I see...a tribute to my grandfather


When I see
"When I see pics of you or anything relating to my childhood, I am reminded of those happy times we shared and how much I miss having you around.
I am the guest designer this month at Category Stories where the prompt is "Everytime I ...(see, touch, feel, smell, taste), I am reminded of..."

My layout is a tribute to the first man I've ever loved. My grandfather.
[a little teary-eyed now]


A little fun with Sassafras papers and embellishments! I cut the base paper into 2, regretted almost immediately and then thought to stitch the opposite ends together...mimicking the faux stitching design that was already on the patterned paper. Makes it a tad more interesting, right? *LOL* Some misting, a mix of beautiful trims (courtesy of Smita!), buttons, Cosmo Cricket letter stickers, American Crafts foam thickers, EK success bubble stickers and K & Co wood letters.
