Today, I have something really special to share with you. Earlier this summer a dear friend of mine passed away. She was a truly amazing woman, wife and mom! I miss her terribly. Her husband had added me on Facebook (that is how he kept everyone up-to-date with her condition) and I noticed some photos from an outing they had recently taken. The photos really touched me. It was wonderful to see her children smiling and laughing, even though they had just lost their mother.
It bothered me that these photos would go 'unscrapbooked', so I decided I would do it, and one day, when the time is right, I will pass this layout on to her family to add to the scrapbooks that she had started.
Here are Spencer and Kourtney participating is their first Dirty Dash!
I used my Silhouette to create this title, which is perfect for this layout. I added some splats of brown mist, and even smudged a few to make it look realistic.
Joanne (my BFF) suggested that I add some chevrons as an accent and tie in the red in the title. I really like how they turned out and what the added to the layout.
I also added some paper splats to really bring in the mud theme.
I am very pleased with how this page turned out and can't wait to give it to them. I will continue to watch for more photos and make more layouts to pass on the the family.
