Local crop challenge.

OK, so we had a challenge at my local crop - we were given a pack of papers - not of our choice, to make a layout from. I was naughty I didn't like my first choice and swapped it for one equally awful, then somebody else didn't like theirs, so I swapped again with them....So as reparations, I decided I'd have to do 3 layouts with the pack. I only added one cardstock (with a hole in the middle) and one book page. There were 5 papers in my pack, no cardstock, and whilst the colours weren't my favourite, I did have some photos that would go with them. I think I did quite well !!

Catch up Time.

Those of you that know me personally are aware that my wonderful, strong, brave husband lost his battle with aggressive brain tumours on the 16th March 2013. We were all devastated, having been given a prognosis of 3-5 years and him only surviving 10 months. We are slowly putting our lives back together, and trying to carry on as were his wishes.....

In memory of Dave Rolfe (25July61-16Mar13)

I have started scrapping again and have found it very therapeutic, especially when going to crops. He always encouraged me to go scrapping as much as possible. I usually went on my own, so luckily I don't find it distressing going off on my own. I've also volunteered for some design work for Scrap365 in the next few weeks, and I hope to get back to teaching, this time at Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn, I just need to get my scrapping head back on!
