It started with a box....and from there my imagination took flight. Annette gave me the task of coming up with a class that could celebrate Grandparents Day and I took it a little further. This class could work for several ocassions that are coming up over the next couple of months. Grandparents Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day...whoever has taught you lessons about life. I didn't have the priviledge of Grandparents growing up (not like my boys...they even have great grandparents) so all of my lessons were learned from my parents. Good or bad...they are all lessons. I really had fun this week coming up with this class and I hope you enjoy what I've posted here.
The front of the pages were so fun to come up with words. I think you can tell I like to use words when I'm doing a book. Is there a name for my kind of people? I used lots of little stamps that are currently available at where else...."The" Crafty Scrapper. It is fast becoming my favorite stamp store along with scrapbooking supplies. Carolyn has really out done herself on the new lines coming out. Oh yeah!!! Martha Stewart has arrived at The Crafty Scrapper....and all her glitter glory (I'm going to have every color you know!).

I haven't had the chance to finish the back side of the pages yet. I've got to go and get some pictures reprinted in a smaller size, but you get the idea. This is a great little book that can be done fast and with all the great Fancy Pant stuff it makes it so easy. Don't you just love double sided papers. I didn't use to but I've become a huge fan.

As you can see I have been hard at work this week creating a fun and special class, designed especially for those we wish to thank for all they have taught us. See you soon, at the Crafty Scrapper, hopefully in my class.
