Tuesday Morning Sketches #157

My whole family is heading  to Rolla, BC (8 hour drive) this weekend to celebrate the towns 100th birthday which my dad's grandparents settled. My grandfather was born in South Dakota and at 3 months old the family started their journey north west. He was three years old when they reached the Peace Country and choose their land. I so wish he was still with us to celebrate this weekend.

While we are there for the weekend we are also celebrating with my mom's side of the family as my grandma is turning 80 at the end of August. I was asked to do a couple pages in 8x8 of my family for a scrapbook we will give together as a gift. I finished those last night around 11pm and worked on a card this morning. I found a great sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches that I used.

Most of the paper used on this card was from the scrap bin. It might be basic grey but I am not positive. The shapes and numbers were cut out from "close to my heart - art philosophy" cricut cartridge and the pearls are from Stampin Up.
