I completed this layout in response to a Library of Memories Community challenge to scrap about a beloved grandparent and include words from a card, note or letter.
My journaling reads: I bought this Grandmother Remembers book for Grandma in 1998. She was getting in worse health at the time and only completed a few lines on 10 of the 60 pages, so I've cut those areas out to use on a few layouts.
Even though Grandma only wrote a few things in the book I bought for her, each note is special to me. I love these two short notes she recorded in the section about my birth.
My other grandmother passed away when I was only two-years-old and I don't have any memories of her, so I especially treasure this note that Grandma thought I resembled her. And one of the things I miss the most since Grandma's been gone these past 11 years is the way she always called me a sunflower and said I was like a ray of sunshine brightening up the room.
I'm excited to add these bits of Grandma's handwriting to my scrapbook because I only have a few items that she wrote over the years. Do you have lots of samples of your grandparent's handwriting or do you, too, just have a few precious pieces?
