It would have been her 89th birthday yesterday and we had made plans to celebrate her day by treating her to afternoon tea at one of her favourite places.....but with Nana celebrating with the angels instead, we decided we would still go - but it just didn't feel the same without her sitting alongside us :(
We are both feeling totally devastated and are finding it difficult to believe that she is gone :(The boys are heartbroken - J especially - which totally threw us as ASD kids - according to the thousands of books out there - aren't supposed to react to death in a typical fashion - which simply proves you can never quite believe all that you read.
Scrapping has been put on the back burner for me for a few more days as I turn my time to much more important affairs.
In the meantime I'll share some recent pages that I created for Karen from Charmed Cards and Crafts using totally divine papers from Prima Marketing.
I dug out my watercolours and played with some Prima Paintables.....the butterflies on this LO are Heidi Swapp mini masks which I folded and covered in Stickles before adhering to the page.
This LO is created using 3 Prima Paintables - I handcut the patterned detail from two other pages before painting and adhering them, using 3d foam tape, to this LO. The butterfly was created using a rubon which I applied to acetate before cutting out and securing to the LO.
Quick! Call the Scrapbook Police!! I have scrapped this photo before - maybe 2-3 times - but never for my own album - I cant help it if Grace has a huge family who all want their own page featuring her for their albums!
A quick 6x12 page to mark my 40th year of life!
I created this LO as part of the BAD GIRLS BIRTHDAY BASH Scraplift Challenge.
PP's are a mix of Rusty Pickle and Urban Lily with a combo of Scenic Route, Cherry Arte and Heidi Swapp alphas to create the title.....the ribbon is from Fancy Pants and the buttons a mix of Basic Grey, Doodlebug and others from my stash box.
The Scraplift Challenge is in full swing with the members of the message board taking part all month long......with classes and plenty of FUN and games galore why not pop over and join in the celebration of Bad Girls 1st Birthday.
I sorted through some old photographs and found this photo of the guys with their buddies Matty and Jon....the photograph was taken in 1999 and yet it only seems like yesterday that the guys were playing in the park!
Bobs loves to pull tricks - especially if they are slick tricks....my guy would skate 24/7 if I allowed him to!
A blast from the past - J was just 5 when these photographs were taken - they show him meeting his cousin, "J2", for the very first time.
A couple of the pages are now making their way across the pond to be used by Sassafrass on their stand at CHA :)
Time for bed!
