Grandpa's 79th Birthday
I love to be creative with many different kinds of mediums, from the moment I was born. I love drawing, painting, sculpturing, cross stitching, sewing and much more. Photography is another passion of mine and I take this with me when I explore the richness of culture the world has to offer. Because I love to travel and made many photos along my journeys, I looked for a creative way to journal all the gained impressions and memories.
About ten years ago I started to fall in love with paper scrapping. I collected a lot of scrapbooking material and made quite a collection of pages. After a while I found myself having less and less time to spend on my hobbies and a few years ago I discovered the ease of use of digital scrapbooking. By making scrapbook pages on my computer, I can scrapbook whenever I have a spare moment, wherever I am.
I recently graduated from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and I've started my own product design agency called Studio Gekko.
My grandpa has been suffering from Alzheimer's disease for a couple of years now and because at a certain moment it became to hard for my grandmother to take care of him on her own, he moved to a nursing home. My grandmother visits him three times a day to help him eat and I also visit him every weekend when I'm in town.
We celebrated is 79th Birthday this year, like we do every year, by eating cake with all the other residents of the nursing home and the nurses. Today he was a little dazed because of all his medication, but he had no problem eating the entire piece of Birthday cake!
All the papers and elements I used in this layout are from Marisa Lerin's Birthday bundle.
