Scrapbook The Sentimental Things About Grandma

by Joannie McBride

It's important for you and future generations to know about their grandmothers through scrapbooking. A wonderful way to make sure this happens is to record the visits to grandma's and all the magical memories shared together. Use this idea from Lisa VanderVeen to capture a sentimental gift given to you by your grandma. Record that memory on your layout.

Scrapbook the Sentimental Things about Grandma

Lisa VanderVeen has very fond memories of her grandmother's sewing basket. Lisa can always find in this the practical things needed to mend a pair of pants or to stitch a shirt pocket back in place. She feels very lucky to have been able to receive such a personal and cherished gift.

But this basket is also filled with so much more than that. It's filled with stories of a grandmother who lovingly stitched the lives of those dearest to her close together.

When you sit down to scrapbook about your grandmother, what stories do you want others to know or remember about her? Are there items, like Lisa's sewing basket, that take you on a trip down memory lane? Maybe your memories are of sitting on the front porch swing together or looking through a family album. Capture those stories, and let your photos and journaling capture the beautiful life of your grandma.
