We spent the second part of the week at my parents' house. While we go there often, it was kind of like a mini-vaca. Nice to get a change of scenery and this way Brad could really make some good progress on finishing the basement without us underfoot.
To start our time together we met up at my Grandpa's nursing home. I wanted to get one more visit in before school started back up and it's harder to get over there. While Grandpa doesn't like long visits I do think our turning up does cheer him up a bit. Since I have so few pictures of him with his great grands I made little layout to really make them special in the album.
The fish tale card and photo frame, a card I cut the center from, are both from Take a Hike, by you guessed it...Simple Stories. I don't have much use for this kind of collection but it was perfect for this. I had no idea how many ugly fishing themed papers there are, until I had to try and find a cute one to use. The chipboard with family fun rub on is TPC Studio and it's all in a trimmed down Design D.
On the back are my favorites from a little mini photo session I had with ER in my parents' back garden. I take pictures of her there every year and they are always some of my favorites. I can't believe how big and grown up she looks! Papers and sticker from Martha Stewart.
WRMK page protector, I've had it for awhile but wasn't sure how to incorporate it. Then I realized it's perfect for papers like this one, with a big design element. The flags came on the cloud paper and are embossed. I added die cut letters for my title, part has been cloned out because it's a city name. The paper provided a large area for me to write on, with enough room to use my three favorite photos from our visit to an end of the summer tradition.
