Hi everyone... wow where has the time gone... Can't believe half the year is already gone by. We've got alot happening at Our Vintage Affair this month. First this months layout theme is "GRANDPARENTS" and here is a template for your inspiration . The winner will win a spot as guest designer for the month of July and also some wonderful Prima & Websters product. Also it's time to announce the winner for my blog candy .

DRUM ROLL PLEASE ..........and the winner is SANDRA !!! Congratulations Sandra... please drop me a line with your address and then I can mail off this delicious blog candy for you. Thank you for playing with us at Our Vintage Affair and have fun being creative with your product.
Now my inspiration for this months theme "Grandparents" this is a rare photo of my grandfather and grandmother. Both I never had the opportunity of meeting.
My grandfather fled his responsibilities of husband and father when my mother was itty bitty (probably between 1 and 2 years old) . My mother grew up never knowing her father and probably just as well because her grandpa whom raised her like a daughter was a WONDERFUL daddy to her. Taught my mother so much. And then when my mother was 17 she lost her very best friend (my grandmother) from medical complications. I am so thankful that my daughter has been able to grow up knowing her grandparents. They have taught her so much and they are truly the love of her life. Now it's your turn. Go rummage through those old photos of your grandparents and do something beautiful with them.
