Because of the great craft area Paul made me I've been able to come home, on a school night, and scrap!!! I've done another layout from the sketch on Shimelle's blog, this week is was using a piece of die cut paper and I had the perfect paper and photo:
I love this picture of my mum and dad and it's the first picture I've scrapped of my dad since he died 3 years ago. I remember exactly where it was taken, 20ish years ago and home when we were having a party.
I've just put a title on, no journalling but I might add that later. They look so happy and they were so happy and nobody could tell that Alzheimer's was just around the corner.
I may change the title to If I Could Have...." and journal some of the words of the Luther Vandross song Dance With My Father. We played it at his funeral but it wasn't all sadness, we really celebrated by ending on Rhinestone Cowboy (one of his favourite songs and one that the whole family would sing whenever it came on - just like the family Von Trapp!) and in the evening we had a firework display.
Sorry for a bit of an outpouring then!
This week has been full of work and headaches but I'm hoping the weather will improve so we can have a visit to the zoo, zoo, zoo, you can come too, too, too..... :)
Have a good evening.
