Grandparents Are Special

I have been blessed to have had several sets of grandparents.  Unfortunately, most of them have past away except for my very spunky 91 year old grandmother.  She is as crafty as they come and quite the decorator.  I will have to post some pics sometime of her home.  Fabulous!

This layout is of my maternal grandfather and step-grandmother.  They were so full of wisdom and lived their life of faith out daily.  I will add journaling later but wanted to share with you the layout.  It is times like this when Heidi Swapp's line "create to remember" really hits home.  As I was working on this page, I enjoyed thinking back to all the weekend visits to their home in Palm Springs, CA while I attended college in San Diego or when I was younger and my family would spend time at their summer home in Door County, Wisconsin.  They loved and cared about those around them.  I hope I can leave such a legacy as they have left.

The papers I used were from Heidi Swapp's Vintage Chic line (except for the strip with the birdcage as it is from London Market).  I used Color Shine on the flowers, chipboard and the paper.  The "beautiful" pennant is from Heidi's Sugar Chic line.  I love how all of her lines coordinate so well.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great week.  Blessings!!
