As promised..........

I'm back with a scrapbook page!
After his wife of 50+ years died in June of 2002, my Grampa was lonely. In May of 2005, he got remarried to his sister-in-law whose husband had passed away in 1990. They are like teens and so romantic. It is sweet to watch how they snuggle and whisper together! She has Alzheimer's and just turned 8o, so her mind is not very sharp and she gets frustrated. Kids and pictures are always a big hit with her though. I made them an 8x8 scrapbook about 2 years ago, and I add pages here and there. They love it! This is my next submission.

I also fulfilled the Late Night Stampers challenge~ Embossing! I used Tea Party DSP, Basic Black CS, and Pink Pirouette CS. The swirly from Baroque Motifs is embossed in white, and the sentiment from "Best Yet" stamp set on the tag is embossed in black. The hearts are punched with the "Love you Much" punch, and I added a "Pretties" layered flower and filigree brad. The "Top Note" die was used to give the photo some spice. There are tiny rhinestone brads around the frame of the journal entry.

Let me know what you think! I am really enjoying all the comments you are leaving. Now, today I must get the patriotic cards out to Kimberlee who is in the Middle East with her "boys". She is an SU demo and is on active duty, so we are sending her LOTS of cards and card kits for her group to make and send home to their families. (Her mother's idea, aren't mother's so sweet?) If you want to get involved, leave me a comment and I'll send you the info.

Have a great day!
