Happy Birthday to one of the greatest ladies in my life, my GRANDMA!! She has to be the strongest woman I know, I know where my mom gets it from!! Well we did not live close to each other and did not get to spend nearly as much time together as I would have wanted but I have such good memories of us together.  She is the worlds best crafter, I know where I get my talent from. She was an amazing lady, the stories I could share! I will share two things with you, the card I made her for her birthday and the reason behind it.  It is a star fold or something like that not really sure, I made it because it was unique, just as she is, first ever card I made with this fold. It is done in all sewing papers because my grandma is the one that taught me how to sew. I remember we went to pick out fabric and  a pattern. I picked a skirt for my first project she was unsure because zippers are tricky but I was like I can so do this:) And I did… my grandma said it was the best job she had ever seen and was so excited, until we noticed that the zipper was backwards. I think we both wanted to cry, I remember her telling me that It will never look as good as it did. She was right! But we fixed it and I had a skirt.  So I learned how to seam rip that day to I guess. I want to say I was 9, not 100% sure….. But what I do know is, I love and miss her very much and hope she a wonderful birthday!!!  Here is the card I sent her, HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!!

Drill: All about Me!!

Our first Drill for S.W.A.T. is a full page layout all about YOU!!! That’s not all, they have a prize up for grabs. So find photos you love, like or even hate and scrap them… they all have a story to tell so tell it about you.

This was a hard layout for me, but I am glad I did it. I never think to scrap about myself so this was fun. I used papers and brads to reflect what I like or what is about me… I picked orange for crafter cause my scrapbook room is orange.  So its the little things that made this layout fun. Most of the papers were sitting in my stash waiting to be used.
