Because I Knew You

Good Morning Scrappy Friends! Today at Scrap It With A Song our new challenge is the song by Kristin Chenoweth from the musical Wicked called "For Good".  When I saw the line "Because I Knew You", I knew exactly what I wanted to scrap. This layout is of my grandmother, my Baba holding Ryan when he was a baby. This wonderful lady helped raise me from the time I was six weeks old. I can't even begin to type all the memories I have of her. She was so special to me. Just looking at this layout makes me miss her even more. She has now passed away, but I think of her often. Around my layout I wrote some of the lyrics from the song.
"It well may be, that we will never meet again in this lifetime, 
So let me say before we part, 
So much of me is made of what I learned from you.
You'll be with me, 
like a handprint on my heart....
But I know I'm who I am today,
Because I knew YOU.

I keep telling the girls that they keep making me cry when I see these songs. I love the challenges because they bring meaning to my layouts. I really hope you can stop by. We post a new song every week, and you have all month to enter. I also go to  try the new Jenni Bowlin line for this from my wonderful friends at Urban Scrapbook and I also used a sketch from a new site I found called Scrappy Sketches.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments and I appreciate your scrappy support! Have a wonderfully happy scrappy day! Lynn

Lynn, your post brought me to tears, I too was raised by my grandparents, both my parents were gone by the time I was 13 and my grandparents became my legal guardians...you did an amazing job on this layout, and what a sweet photo, such pretty details, a nice way to remember her :)
