. . . and the winner of the seam binding ribbon is Scrappyjo! Send me your addy and I’ll get the ribbon out to you.

I can’t tell you how glad I am that I’m finished with school! I took my last two finals this week and now I can relax a little and maybe get some sewing and some paper crafting projects done. I have so many projects I would like to work on.  I am lucky enough to posses some valued family heirloom . . .  my grandmother's handmade linens (I would love to make curtains out of them), all those old photos (that need scrapped), and even my father's football sweater.  These items have been handed down from generation to generation and are cherished by each new recipient.  Family treasures come in all shapes and sizes.  The simplest object can hold the memories of generations past.  Each old photograph that I have acts like a window into my family's past.  That's why I'm an advid scrapbooker, working to capture those precious memories.  I'm really preserving the present for the future and the past for the present.

I have managed to squeeze in a little scrappy time this week and completed the layout sketch and the card sketch challenge at My Sketch World.
