Memories of Grandma!

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about my Grandma McCoy.  I'm the first "scrapbooker" in our family and I find myself trying to write down the little things as I think of them so that I can tell the story later in my scrapbooks.  I did just that in the layout below.  I created this layout in September 2011 to incorporate multiple challenges over at Club CK. If you haven't checked out Club CK, you should! 

 The challenges were:
I even used up some scraps  - the patterned paper and blue card stock were both from my scrap file.

I am in the process of getting photos out of <cringe> shoeboxes  and old  photo albums with yellow pages <cringe some more> and at least get them into photo safe storage containers.  As I find photos that spark memories, I have been jotting them down and placing them with the photo, hoping that they will spark yet other memories that I can capture when I start to scrapbook. 

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Very nice layout, Hattie! I love all your cuts and that touch of lace!

    Photos.. all of my photos need to be printed out from my computer, but it feels overwhelming! :) Hehehehe- so I guess one thing at a time right? Can't do everything at once..

    1. Thanks for the comments Stephanie. I know what you mean about feeling overwhelmed. Yep - one thing at a time.

  2. What a beautiful tribute to your grandma! I love the clustering!


Thank you for taking the time to stop and comment! I love reading each and every comment!
