AFSC Sketch - April 2013

The April Sketch at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge looks difficult, and we all know how deceiving looks can be.  I had a lot of fun creating this layout about my grandchildren and my Aunt In-law who passed away last week.

AFSC April 2013

This months first challenge at AFSC is to scrap your greatest challenge, and anyone who knows me will know that my greatest challenge has been learning to live without my loving husband.


My journaling reads:
"With my faith - Gods help and my family I know that I can meet the challenge - After a long and happy marriage, having to look to the future that doesn't have John.  Knowing that the plans we had made were not going to happen.  Having to learn to cook for one and make decisions on my own and not having anybody to share my burdens."

Kraft It Up - April 2013

I have been busy creating this month, and haven't had a chance to share much yet.  So I will start with my layout for the April Kraft It Up Challenge, which is to use something recycled.  I have recycled some Prima package, obviously I go through a lot of that with my Prima obsession.

Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #16/2013 @ Scrapbook Fantasies

The Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #16/2013 at Scrapbook Fantasies is to create a layout using the word "Lollypop" as inspiration.  I have created a layout about my youngest grandson, who features in the majority of my layouts at the moment.  I created little Lollypops with smaller photographs of Noah and some of his antics.

Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #15/2013 @ Scrapbook Fantasies

The theme for Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #15/2013 at Scrapbook Fantasies is to create a layout with a masked background.  I have used mist and random applications of texture paste through a mask on my background.  Once this was dry I added two other mists randomly over the whole background.  My layout is about my family and I have used photographs of the many people (and a bird) who are my family, even my mother, father and dear husband who can't be with me anymore to share how wonderful my children and grandchildren are.
