Words to Grow on...

Is the title of the little book my Dad was looking at with Matthew. It feels like someone is squeezing my heart everytime I look at these photos :) You know how you dream of having children and watching them with their Grandparents...this was that moment. These photos are so special to me. Sorry for the glare on the left pic.

This layout sat on my scrap table for a couple of days, it just seemed to need something else. Added the big circle and it all fell into place :)

The super cute Giraffe "Grandpa" & "Grandson" were created with the Cricut cartridge "Paisley".

Layered paper flowers with felt centers & leaves from Stampin' Up.

Here is a journaling closeup


Inked everything for a boyish look.

Cardstock: Bazzill, Die Cuts With a View: patterned paper: Echo Park, Imaginince; letter stickers: Basic Grey; chipboard stickers: My & My Big Ideas; flowers: Kaiser Kraft; leaves, flower centers: Stampin' Up; metal rim tags, stickpins: Making Memories; gems: Kaiser Kraft; diecuts: Cricut Provo Craft (Paisley cartridge); ink: Ranger; pen: Sharpie; adhesive: 3L, Therm O Web, Tombow.

Time to take supper over to Grandpa Joe (the Grandpa in the photos) and maybe the peach cobbler Eric is making will be done when I get back! The house is semi peaceful right now...Mimi is doing a puzzle & Matthew is playing his electric guitar (riffs of Pink Floyd are wafting down the stairs). Hoping to get some scrapping in when I get back. Have a great weekend!

Beth- this LO is priceless!!! Fantastic job. And I love that you used pink & flowers on a page about boys. Beautiful work (as usual).

Adorable! Love how you used the title of the book for your own title---and so perfect for a generational photo!
Hey, be sure to check the Imaginisce won something!
