My middle one and her family. A great moment in time captured forever. These little girls grow so much, it's usually six months in between Gammy's visits and they change so quickly, so these captured glimpses in time will be even more valuable as the years creep on.

I absolutely love the poses the girls made so cute!

If you like the frame or heart it's a new kit designed by Lori Giles - Pages of the Heart Collection - Love Each Other Mini Kit. Lori sells at Natural Designs in Scrapbooking.
This one is just for you Amber. (My youngest) who left me a note there weren't enough pictures of my three, just the grandkids! So here's one for my baby (yep even at 31 you'll be the baby, it's a label that sticks to the youngest like glue, just ask me I know!).

The kids went to Disneyland to celebrate their Honeymoon, even though they married in July they Honeymooned in October. They were given the Royal treatment everywhere they went in this magical land. I think because they wore their 'Hats' that it was a dead give away to all the characters that they had Honeymooners. Everyone was super nice and posed where ever they went.

It's just hard to believe it's now been 2 1/2 years!

If you like the Kit I used it's Barb Speck's My Tattered Heart (the ribbon is from her Swirly Sheer Ribbons).

Wow I was picked! What a great surprise today. This layout was picked at Scrap Outside The Box by the Atta Girls Team. They have left me great compliments about it. Now Amber you've been seen around the world how's that????

Journaling Reads:

I don't remember seeing a picture of my Grandparents taken together,
So, much to I'm sure my Grandma's dismay,
I 'put' them together with modern technology!

I was born long after they had ceased to be a couple
but I wonder about the early years.
What drew them to one another,
what bond they found that started the love at the beginning?

Grandma lived next door when I was a little girl;
She moved from California to Washington
And eventually settled beside us in a small little mobile home.

Grandpa was always the California Grandpa that I only saw on rare occasions.
Someone who never complained about the little
Granddaughter that clung to him on visits
Or sent him letters in her little girl handwriting after each visit.

Memories have grown so dim over the years, just a few fleeting ones remain
And they hold fast in my mind. But, in my heart the love never wavers.
Differences and life's choices separated them years ago. When I came along I loved them individually and equally.

But today it makes me smile and gives my heart such
Joy to see them side by side here,
For to that little girl and the grown woman she has become
They were, and always will be my

Grandma and Grandpa

I used a beautiful kit from Lori Giles Serenity available for purchase at Natural Designs In Scrapbooking to create my page. Lori does a fabulous job designing her elements.
