I remember when series:7 up cakes Birda Mae use to make

 I got this image from here
I got this idea fromBeyond Blogging Class  I want to write the journaling portion of my scrapbook/recipe album
I am making for my grandmother who passed away almost 2 years ago. My grandmother was awesome in so many ways she was down to earth, loving , and kind to name a few things.  She is known  for her cooking in our family. I would even go so far as to say that  the way you knew she was loved was through her cooking.  However there was one dessert  I began to hate with a passion.  That was the dreaded 7up cake. Don't
get me wrong the cake itself was a culinary delight, but I was the one who had to walk in 90o weather to  the  store up the street from where we  lived to get it.
I know it sounds mean but I use to wish she would buy a six pack of 7up rather than have me go almost every other day(sometimes, not every week)
to get one can of 7up.  I remember I couldn't wait to go to college so I wouldn't  have to do that anymore.
Life is funny though because it was only a couple of years after that I began to really miss her 7up pound cakes!
Grama(Birda Mae) we love you and miss you so much .The world lost some of it's sparkle  when you passed
away but you will never be forgotten.

Love this story!!! What a great idea of a cook/scrapbook. There is always someone who is known for cooking in a family and its awesome that you are journaling the stories that go with some of these/ What a special book this will be to you children and thier children :):) THat is so funny about buying the one can of 7up.....Im betting she grew up in a time where they only bought what they needed and were thrifty.
Yeah I think my grandma was a kid in
the Great Depression so I think that is the way her generation thought about spending money in general I am glad you like the story

Project Life App : Digital Scarpbook Page

I am trying to figure out how to post these layouts without the blogger app.
I got a new phone and ever since I reformatted the SD card no more room for Blogger app😑. Was it a great app?
No. Was it useful enough? Yes kinda like oatmeal , not spectacular but the health benefits are what you need.😝 I am still editing pics with the sketch camera app.
Most of the colors came from the Inspirational​ themed kit and the Yellow Stripes from the High Five Edition. Well I hope this works

Project Life App : Digital Scrapbook Page

I believe I figured out a way to add these layouts. I have to post through Instagram on my phone first. Then add it to Blogger via my phone . If only I had more room on my SD card. Anyhooo....I finished Waiting by Ha Jin. I also finished Prey by Michael Crichton. (Author of Jurassic Park) and started on The Client by John Grisham, saw the movie years ago thought I would try the book.I used the High Five Edition . The photos were edited by Avairy app for the color app and Sketch Camera app so I could use them with the bright colors.  I miss traditional  layouts since school is out I will try to do my project life photo album.
