About this scrapbook page:
My Grandfather from my Father's side who lived in Canton Appenzell (Schonengrund) Switzerland...I only met him once for a very brief week or so, when I was about twelve or thirteen years old. Inset photos of Grandfather and his home in Switzerland that he was so proud of. I love the large photo of my Grandfather holding his pipe,unfortunately it is difficult to see...I remember as a child being so impressed with his pipe, as it was quite a fancy one.
Design credits:
Background was blended with a couple of Vera Lim papers, and a map of Switzerland and a Swiss stamp (both downloads from the internet) I also used Studo Manu Texture overlay, overlays from Vera Lim; flower from Raspberry Road Vintage Peddlar

You have captured the dignity and gentle wisdom of your Grandfather in this beautiful art page, Franny. It is just so beautiful and you have instilled it with a timelessness and tenderness that is unbelievably moving. I am inclined to agree with Gentletouches, your brilliance is clearly not always appreciated as it should be. This is just brilliant.

Fran, this is so meaningful and sweet and beautiful. I've been away from SBF for a while. And now that I am here and once again seeing the voting system and the low voter, I am reminded of the things I don't miss. What I do miss are friends like you! You have a very special place in my heart.
