SU Scrapbooking


Yesterday was the 2nd anniversary of my grandmother's death. I grieved grately when she passed and again this year, on her anniversary. She was my Angel in life and I still believe her to be my angel. RIP Grandmom!

I used SU Simply Scrappin Sweet Nothings, Close as a memory stamp set, Fifth Avenue floral, copic markers and some old chipboard I had laying around, but the SU stuff would work just as well...
