Memorial Albums

Sorry to leave you all hanging. :-) I am still working on the Huge project- I am working on Memorial albums for both of our children's grandfathers. I know this will be the only way our kids will ever know more that "he was that guy who died along time ago." Our fathers both passed away when there were young- 49 and 58- and I am trying to fill my books with things to share their lives with Hunter and Hailey.

We visited Grandma B on Saturday- she had a lot of things to share. Way more pictures than hubby thought, she even had every grade card from school for her late husband. We spent the day going through pictures, constructing a time line, and just focusing on the man my Husband's dad was. He passed away in 1983 (when Hubby was a senior in High School) and I never had the pleasure of meeting him. We ended our visit with a trip to the cemetery. ( I would HIGHLY recommend the one line class "In Loving Memory" if you are interested in creating a scrapbook about someone you lost.)

This is going to be the title page for one of the albums (Haven't decided which one yet.)-

I used a die cut machine for all the cuts. (The green things are tufts of grass. LOL) I still need to cut a couple more things and embellish. (So yea, you will be seeing this one again. LOL)

I would love to see and pages you have done in remembrance of someone (or even a pet.) Just leave me a link so I can find it.

I am working on cleaning my studio (read- find my work surfaces. LOL) So hopefully soon I will get to share some stamping.

Until later~

what a wonderful idea! I'm going to tell my sister because we lost our dad 3 1/2 years ago and it would be a great way to share him with her kids. great idea!

What a awesome idea, Lisa! I really should do one about my grandma and give it to my niece since I don't have kids of my own... she has started a family, so that way she could have it for her kids.

Can't wait to see what this page when it's finished!!
