I created two 12″ x 12″ pages using a photo of my grandfather and I, there is more information about the photo at the bottom of the page. I have scrapbooked him before and you can see the layout here. The envelope on the second page in the pocket has more information about the photo and my grandfather. I tucked Monopoly cards and money, which I got from my mother in law, into non archival sports collector sleeves. The Monopoly rules and more Monopoly money is in a memorabilia pocket.  I used a checkerboard pattern for the background. I altered some playing cards, with rubberstamps, crackle, ink, etc. I did test the cards with a PH pen and they were acidfree.

My grandfather was the best grandfather one could wish for; he always wore a pocket watch, a pair of braces, a pocket-knife, a small Derringer revolver, handkerchief, a hat and a jacket. He used to visit us regularly for a few days, arriving by train and then playing board and card-games with me for hours.  He was always very friendly and used to delight my friends and me with magic tricks as well.
