Beloved Memory Freebie

Steam Train

The Beloved Memory train was done for one of our fellow designers whose Grandfather recently passed away. We've all lost loved ones in our life, so this was a nice gesture.

When you say Grandfather, you're talking about my Grandpa Tom, who was my mom's father. I really didn't get to know my Dad's side of the family well, and certainly after the divorce, things got more distant.

Grandpa Tom, when we were small was a bit of a drunk, and when he was into his cups my Grandmother would always say things like "Stay away from him, he's crazy!" So I was a bit afraid of him until I got old enough to understand what was going on.

When he was sober, he was a great guy. He took us to the zoo and circus - all sorts of places. Later he had to stop drinking as he drank his way into diabetes.

After he retired he became Santa for Stoffer's Square in Ohio. And he was the genuine article. No cheap rip off stuff for him. When kids saw him in the middle of summer and immediately though "Santa" you knew he was doing something right.

So, I took all sorts of bits and pieces of my Grandfather and put them into elements in this kit. There are 20 papers and 103 elements.

NOTE: This is a TAGGERS SIZE kit, but it is saved to 300 DPI so it's a bit more versatile than most 72 DPI taggers kit. Personal use only!
