{She Inspires}

I made this layout for my local scrapbook store quite some time ago, but never shared it here.
My Grandma is the one that really started my love for playing with paper so many years ago.

I added one of her old measuring tapes, and pieces of a pattern that I had saved.


In the photo she is wearing a dress and a fur wrap that she had made and was so very proud of.  Oh, and that huge photo on the wall behind her, yep that's me. Circa 1968

As always, thanks for stopping by!
