Layout Love

I'd like to share a couple of layouts that I've done this month ... I certainly have the scrapping bug again.



This past week has certainly been a bumpy one.  I lost my wonderful Aunt, on Monday - she was my mum's older sister, and I think was at a complete loss, after mum died.  She actually had a stroke in October of last year, and never really recovered.  Still, I know she's at peace now, and I can only imagine the trouble mum and her are causing. She was a real "gad-a -bout" ... never sitting still, and I think her and I had so much in common, more than really anyone else in our family.  We both loved to bake & craft. In fact, she was the one that made our Wedding Cake ... she used to tell everyone in the home that  :) Plus, she was such a huge Clarke Gable fan, and had a photo of him by her bed ... I'm happy thinking she's met her idol now.

We also had a few days away this past week - something we couldn't cancel. It was a SPA break that we won at an auction towards the end of last year.  I'd never been to a SPA before, and wow was it amazing, I think I'm hooked - even Simon was taken by it.

I'm still continuing well with Project Life ... and actually up to date - I won't bore you with all the pages, but I will ever so often, if you don't mind.

  6. Great Dog LO's. Dogs do kind of rule the roost and get away with it don't they. I would love to see your PL as I am making a serious attempt this year and need all the encouragement I can get!

  14. So glad you enjoyed your Spa - if I'm a good girl Mr P sends me away each year to Champneys (I think it is more about him getting peace and quiet LOL!!) - I always say they should give those places out on prescription - does me far more good than any pills.

    Sorry to hear about your aunt (((hugs)))
