The One Where It's Grandparents Day!

Pagie, Rick and I have all been blessed with some great grandparents.  Sunday is Grandparents Day, so I decided to send out a few cards to show them we cared about them.  I got the idea here, and grabbed some of our scrapbook paper and ended up making 9... yes NINE cards (Paige has 3 sets of grandparents and 5 sets of great-grandparents... some of them steps, but that's still family!).  I used a few different patterns, but they all basically were the same thing.  

I let Paige color on her hand print since she loves to color, and I thought it would make it more from her that way.  Also, Rick told me I should write 'pull my finger' so they knew to move the hand.  I did on most of them, but I just wrote 'pull down' for the more conservative grandparents.  :)


I'm happy with how they turned out and I hope that it gave them all big smiles.

Thanks A MILLION to all of the grandparents we have.  They have all been such great supports in our lives.  We love them!


I will be linking up here and here and here and here and here. :)
