12 X 12 Sketch #9

Yesterday I got an email from my Mom. It said that my Grandpa had died while he was sleeping. My Grandpa had Alzheimers and really has been going down hill fast over the last year. When I saw him last, it was the weekend before I moved here to Germany. I knew in my heart, that would be the last time I would see both my Grandparents. And I was right. My Grandma died the month after I moved and now my Grandpa. As much as we are all relieved that he is suffering no more, there is a big part of me that is still sad. And it is so hard knowing I can't make it back for the funeral.

So with receiving this news, it has made me think about my scrapping a bit more. I don't really have any layouts of my Grandparents in my Scrapbooks. It is mainly my kids that I scrap. So, I decided I was going to take this sketch (#9) and make a layout about my Grandpa and Grandma.

I can't wait to see what you decide to do with it. Just link it up in the comment section if you are willing to share.

Just a reminder that our August Sketch Challenge ends on Friday. So far, we only have one entry. So if you want a shot at the $10 Gift Certificate, you need to get your layout uploaded before Friday! Come and Join the fun!

Do you have a place to put it? Like on your own blog? Or somewhere on the web? If so, you can just put a link to where it is at in the comment section and we can click on it to see it.

Otherwise, you can send me your layout in an email and I can upload it on the site for you.
