Love you Nani

Monday, March 14, 2016

I am among March a very creative month. Calvinball has that effect on me. That and I'm ready for spring, but it's been too rainy to do much outside of the house. So, on to today's project. 

I saw this great sketch at ScrapMuch? Combine that with a moldboard challenge at Scrapbook Generation, and the desire to use some brand new product and this is the result. 

I started to use the sketch as it was designed. At the last minute, I changed the photo, which led me to both flip,  and mirror image it. I adjusted the title and journaling placement, and am really happy with the way it came out.

I lost my Nani a month ago. I feel like I need to do pages about her right now. This is the opposite of how I felt when my Grandfather passed away 5 years ago. I couldn't even look at photos of him without crying. Nani enjoyed life all the way to the end. This photo couldn't exemplify that any better. So yes, this is how I want to remember her.

Thanks for stopping by my creative view today. There will be lots going on here this week, so please come back again.
