Great grandma present

Mom and I were discussing all the creative things we've done this year, which made me remember that I never shared the Christmas present that I made for my grandma. And sadly, before we sent it to her (in pretty frames), neither of us took a good picture - this is from my phone on the day I made it. 

The layout had to feature both sets of great-grand boys, be on two pages, and have relatively fair representation of my sister's kids. Thankfully, mom and I are planners and had decided in June that I'd make this present and mom would buy the scrapbook frames, which means that when my sister visited in August there were LOTS of pictures taken for *this*  purpose! My sister thinks we're cray-cray, but that's okay.

There's a couple of scraps in here, but most of the page is American Crafts Chap - paper, ribbons, tabs, accordion flowers, etc. We sewed that red ribbon to the blue, and also the blue ribbon to the photo and then glued the yellow over the seam. The circle border was cut on the Silhouette Cameo. There's lots of distressing - tearing, crumbling, inking.

  1. Isn't it lovely to have your kids be blessed by their great grandma? My kids (14 and 16) are still blessed by knowing my grandparents on my mom's side, but they knew (although briefly) three sets of great grandparents. I really think this gives kids a sense of belonging. What a cherished gift this must have been. My hope is that you make many more of these gifts long past your kid's teenage years.


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
