~SMC #25....HAPPY GRANDPARENTS DAY with a lil COURAGE~

Alright I finally got through with my project. It took a little longer than I thought and I'm not quite sure it's what I had in my head, but I know my grandma will like it. She loves the little things even with imperfections. When I was a really little, I had a Fischer-Price Tape player, that I would walk around my grandma's house singing into, and my favorite song to sing to my grandma was Eric Carmen - All By Myself. My grandma is getting up in age now, she's close to 90 and not doing so well with her health, and its this memory that I hold on to, and I know she holds on to as well, because she has to tell everyone about it everytime I go home. So I thought I would use that songs title in my card that I'll be sending to her for Grandparents Day and for her birthday.
Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking!!
