This humble piece of wood veneer was the inspiration for a layout about my great-grandfather.
By creating my page around a phrase I remember him saying frequently, I was able to focus on his personality and capture a bit of who he was, at least as I remember him. Love that.

I can tell Grandpa Bump is proud of his new car. No doubt he worked hard and saved money to buy it. By the time I came along, he was a successful business owner. Even when we were kids, he wanted us to earn a little money and was always happy to hear we were putting some in the bank, saving for that proverbial rainy day. (...or maybe a new car)I have already scrapped this photo again for a July assignment, so you'll see it on a new layout next month. Since this is an older photo that was scanned, I can print and scrap it as many times as I want! Do you have stack of older photos? Are you ready to find a story or two?
As wonderful as the Make It Mean issue is, I'm eagerly anticipating the release of Grids and Blocks on July 10th. Can't wait to dive into that one!
