  1. I would love to have this!! I have a ten year old daughter since she has lost all of her grandparents and doesn’t remember very much about them, I would use this to work on a special scrapbook for her. Detailing her granny and paw paw’s lives.

  2. I would love to use this photo pack on on my blog; especially for those times I write a train of thought style wordy post that I don’t have just the right image to add…

    That brown floral pattern you featured above is utterly delicious!

  3. I would use it to put together a scrapbook about all the adventures my nana has had throughout her life as a present to her for her birthday this year – She’s turning 94 in a couple months!

  4. I have about a million things I’d love to use this for – well, maybe not a million, but it feels like that! I’d use it for two small businesses, my Dad’s new website for his restaurant and my blog! Awesome giveaway!
