Grandmother


Okay, I'll admit it this layout was supposed to be titled "Grandmother Murray" but I ran out of thickers. Seriously, I need a second job for all the thickers I go through. Anyway this one's a bit of a tear jerker. My grandmother passed away when I was six (same age as Sid is now) and I only have a few memories of her. I literally cried while making this. Both my grandmothers were such great ladies and I so wish I could sit down and have a chat and a couple glasses of wine with them now I'm an adult. I recently did a layout about my other grandmother but I'm not happy with and will re do it soon and share it here. Thanks for taking a peek and click on the layout to see it larger.

Such a lovely layout and I like the title like this. Simple and perfect. What a wonderful gift for your family to have this layout of her.

Very pretty. I have lost both sets of grandparents and my parents, so I completely get emotional layouts. I also get not having enough thickers to complete a title. lol
