scrappin' sista
from another generation



yesterday i had a 700 lb. pallet of memories from my dh's grandma who passed away this past summer. and after hauling (with a girlfriend of mine - thank you jennifer!!!!) all of those boxes in the pouring rain... my living room is now full of boxes. i have opened a few of them so far...

it is mostly photos, letters, newspaper clippings, baby books and memory type stuff from his grandparents, and 2 sets of great grandparents! holy moly! omg!!! there is so much there, one couldn't scrap it in a lifetime!

but as i was looking through the first couple of boxes, i came across these two smaller boxes... and HAD to share them with you guys! how cool is this... my scrappin' sister from another generation!!! these are from my dh's grandma, and written in her own handwriting. i just thought that was really cool!

An inheritance more valuable than money. How blessed you are to get to see into the lives of those you might not have had the pleasure to have known. Enjoy every minute. Cindy

OMG I love the photo bag. How fun. I live in Nebraska and I am a pharmacist and photographer. If you ever want to get rid of it I would love to talk with you... :)
