Caleb David Falk

I got a call the other day from my a woman I have known all my life.  Her name is Vera, and she was a childhood friend of my mother's who has remained her dear friend all these years.  She and her husband are now great-grandparents, and she asked me to make a paper bag album for her precious new great-grandson, Caleb David.  I was honored and excited to do it for her.  Vera and her husband, Dave, have been close to me throughout my entire life, and they are awesome Christian people.  Their oldest son, David, has had major medical problems.  He had strokes, heart surgeries, paralysis, and a long list of medical issues.  Yet, all of them remain so strong in their faith.  It is quite a testimony.  This new baby, Caleb David, is David's son's son.  Confusing, right?  Dave (David) and Vera have a son named David, and he has a son named David, and he has a son named Caleb David.  Whew!  Anyway, I wanted to quickly share just a glimpse of that paper bag album.  I need to pop it in the mail this afternoon so it will get to Minnesota by week's end.

I used six paper bags, so it would be too much to show it all.  I used Making Memories Animal Crackers line, lots of buttons, strings, stickers, journaling spots, photo tags in every pocket, and lots of room for memories to be stored.  Vera wants to write her precious great-grandson a letter to tuck inside.  How sweet is that?  It makes me excited to have grandchildren.

Thanks for taking a peek, and thank you for your sweet comments.  By the way, I added a give-away on my sidebar that Lora is having over at her blog.  You can enter to win a $50 Simon Says Stamp gift certificate by following her blog.  You might want to check it out - WOW - what a prize.

Have a blessed day.
