Grandparents Make Life Grand & Creative Patch Tutorial

October 3, 2011

I am so incredibly blessed to have so many grandparents who have blessed my life.  Being from a divorced and remarried family, we were blessed with an abundant amount of grandparents who loved us very much.
I wanted to capture not only my treasure grandparents, but the relationship that my children now have with their grandparents (my parents).
As I created this album, so many wonderful memories flooded back... from the wonderful shopping trips and feasting afterwards at McDonald's.

To the holidays spent out at my Dad's and hearing him say that he loves to be surrounded by all his 8 grandchildren - even among all the chaos that ensues!
To the hugs that with my "other" dad always loves to give and receive from his grandchildren.
To the tree farm memories of my "other" mom and her grandchildren.

To the beautiful memories of our holiday and treasured times spent together.

And seeing how my children love to spend time with their Grammy (my mom). From Grammy's grand kids sleep over parties, to special snack cabinet to all the loves and hugs given.  I can only hope that one day, I will be half the Grammy that she is to my children.
The best thing about this album is that my Mom used her incredible sewing talents to create these sewn canvas pages to include in it.  If you are interested in this album from The Scrappy Gourmet, which include these beautifully sewn canvas pages that my mom did, you can purchase it here and see more pictures of the album here.

It's just gorgeous! What a sweet treasure to keep and display forever. I miss my grandparents; we were very close. I'm so lucky though that they were in my life for a long time and I got to know them as an adult. I'm happy you're enjoying yours!
Take care,
Holly

Gorgeous! I have a spring and a raven. I think I might have to add that to the Fall and Halloween decor!
