Heavenly Hash

It's funny the little things which trigger the strongest feelings.  I associate my Grandma Madeleine's Heavenly Hash with family gatherings.  It's such a simple recipe.  Nothing fancy.  But having it there, among all the other dishes, for whichever holiday we're celebrating, makes it like she's there with us. 

Supply credits to come...

I've always wished my kids could have gotten to know my Grandma.  Especially my daughter for whom she is named after.  But, instead, I hope making the dish together brings them just a little bit closer to her.

I decided to try my hand at a digi layout again.  You know, I always hear digi scrappers proclaim how much quicker they scrap digitally.  Uh, nope.  Still takes me for. ev. er.  Although, I do believe it has a lot to do with my snail of a laptop. 

This layout is based on this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  I'm making up for all those very clean and simple sketches I made the last couple months, eh?

Well, I've managed to miss another 3 days of the Attitude of Gratitude challenge.  I'm going to have to catch up later this week. 

Today, I am grateful my kids did have the opportunity to get to know my Grandpa despite however brief their time together was.  Or moreso, I'm glad he got to meet them.  :o)
