I mostly used papers that I had lying around my scraproom. My grandmother is 101, and I just found out today that her health has taken (another) turn for the worse. That motivated me to get scrapping, and journal!

For those interested, here is the journalling:
Grandma’s hands. These hands have seen over a century of life and love … and I can feel that love as Grandma Frose clasps my hand. Hands that …
- clapped for me as a two year old standing on the footstool and singing
- held my hand and walked me to the road on the first day of school
- made after school snacks for twelve years
- cooked my favorite meal (mashed potatoes) every Saturday at noon
- taught me how to milk a cow
- showed me little baby chicks - only a few days old
- guided me as I learned to drive the tractor
- played Canasta and other card games
- collected and cleaned eggs to sell
- held my son and daughter
- clapped for my two-year daughter as she stood on the same footstool and sang.
Now those hands are weary. But they are strong enough to hold onto those she loves.
