Lots of thoughts of those no longer here......

Its been a year since my Grandma Fran passed away, I thought i would honor my thoughts of her with a lo :) I did the "shopping" challenge on SIS, I picked Sequins, an Envelope, and Number stamps. It was a super fun challenge as always. It tends to stretch my imagination alot.......who thought of using an envelope on a lo???? I like how it came out......I had a ton of thoughts running through my mind to journal, but i didnt feel like crying my eyes out so i went for simple and too the point. One day ill get it all out, just not now i guess. Funny how timing is everything. I tend to scrap what im feeling when i walk in to my studio.......Almost every day i think of scrapping about her, or my Aunt(who also passed), but the amount of emotion kinda overwhelms me :( One day im sure ill just do it and let it go.........ok im not gonna cry while i blog so ill change the subject.......I chose 3 other things from the shopping challenge to scrap with tonight, Ill post that lo tomorrow. Its super cute watercolor messy.....and HAPPY!!!! Hagd bloggin buddies :)

That LO is terrific. It does just what you wanted- it shows a lot of love without being so emotional that it is tear-making. Sounds like a really fun challenge.

isn't cool how the creative process helps you to cope? I love your lo, especially the hand-lettering and the sassafrass lined envelope!

love this layout. That is what is so cool about this amazing hobby. You can do pretty and cute but you can also do deep and harsh. I love breaking out the paint too. It's very therapeutic for your heart and your soul. Great job

I love your LO : )
I can so identify with what you say, my grandad left us in April and I still can't bring myself to scrap about him. I miss him so much.
Hugs to you.
