Earlier this spring I was asked by Laura, a lady who lives in my Condominium Park if I would help her put a scrapbook together of her life. She went on to tell me that she had Cancer and wanted to make a album for her granddaughters. As she was telling me what she wanted I could hear her quivering voice and it was all I could do not to cry with her. I assured her that I would be there the next day and we would look at what had and I would come up with some ideas.
Once I was off of the phone I pray to God to give me guidance. Even though I was a Health Care Aide for many years and could handle many situations this was going to be a struggle for me.
We did meet and she picked out what pictures she wanted me to scrapbook and I took them home and did what I could. It is hard enough to scrapbook for yourself sometimes, never mind someone you just met and know nothing about except that she may not be here a few months from now.
Well Laura was called home and I thought I would share a few of the pages I did for her over the next few posts.
This was a photo of Laura and her two dogs, I do not know their names but it was taken in much happier times. I wanted to make journaling spots for her to write about herself and the dogs So I drew lines then cut the lines out with the Scalloped Frame Oval die but I left off the scallop part and just used the inside oval.
She wanted blues and browns so I used Chocolate Chip DSP and Bella Birds DSP both retired now. The circles were stamped with Circle Circus and punched out and the paw print is from D is For Dog.
The page itself is 8 x 8 as that was the size album she had picked out.
Here's what I used:
Stamps: Circle Circus, D is for Dog
Paper: Chocolate Chip and Bella Birds DSP, Chocolate Chip Card Stock
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Scallop Frame Oval Die from SU, Scallop Border Punch
