As we got ready for this. I did some research. I had no idea that 5 million Americans live with Alzheimers and that every 71 seconds, someone will develop it. It's the sixth leading cause of death. That's startling.
You might wonder why I feel so passionate about this. This is the reason... roughly 14 years ago, my grandpa died from the effects of Alzheimers. He was a quiet man who loved to work with his hands and was always tinkering with something. He had a knack for making miniature furniture pieces. It was so hard to watch his mind unravel. I can't imagine how painful it must have been for my grandma knowing he just didn't recognize her any more. That's why, when I picked up Carolyn's set, I felt joy not only because of the "happy" images but for the good that will come of it!
Here's a peek at my card... it's actually a peek-a-boo card! I used Stampin' Up's Word Window Punch to let my tag like card slide down into the pocket. All of the images were colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor Pencils.
We hope you travel from blog to blog and read our stories. If you can, buy Carolyn’s set knowing you will be helping other families who are working through this as well. To see how our team is helping in the cause, visit
