My 21 month old Granddaughter has always had a special bond with her Great Grandfather.   This picture really shows it so well.   They usually see each other every Sunday but one week they were on vacation to DC so she didn't see them.    She really missed him and a few days after they got home she heard Papa's voice on the telephone and just ran to the door to go see him.   Took a bit coaxing and trying to reason with a 21 month old but she calmed down, so this last week they went a day early on Saturday and took her over for some special time together.   She ran right into the house to him and was excited and spent a lot of time being held and having their own little "conversations"

I used the prompt #420 at  "LASTING MEMORIES"  for this layout -   This month is all about Techniques and this week it was Stitching.    I have faux stitching around both of my photo mats and then also on the four corners of the background paper.

Here is the link to    "LASTING MEMORIES"    and the information about  the challenge.

LM #420 - Stitching - One of my favorite things to add to my layouts is stitching. Your challenge this week is to add some type of 'STITCHING'. This can be actual machine or hand stitching, stamped or stenciled stitching, faux stitching, etc.
