Okay, so I’ve been making time to scrap but finding time to update the old blog is rough. Anyway, here’s a LO that is close to my heart. It was somewhat difficult to do because I miss my mother very much.

I love the Having Hope collection by Thao Cosgrove at ScrapGirls. I had to have it. As soon as I saw it, I thought of the concept for this page. Mostly because I used Beth Nixon’s Choosing Hope kit for a layout about my mother’s victory over breast cancer. She had gone into remission but the cancer returned so aggressively within only 3 months or so–even the oncologist was surprised.

Well, without further ado, my tribute to my beautiful mother:

I’m going to try this photo a day challenge at SG. I created a template that I will use to help me get the photos off my camera and here into my blog. Some of the photos will end up in their own layouts but I hope I’ll have a nice 365 page album at the end of the year.

I am a member of ScrapGirls Monthly Club and this LO features the November 2008 featured kit–Character Collection Biggie by Durin Eberhart. It wasn’t love at first sight with this kit, but the previews just didn’t do it justice! As I unzipped and tagged the files, I just knew I couldn’t resist the urge to scrap with it. My favorites from this selection include the alpha, the rich jewel tones, and the exquisite detail and textures of the papers.

I am glad I was able to find some time 2 scrap this weekend. My next few projects will be holiday oriented and also, I have the sad duty of sending gratitude cards to friends and family who supported my family during our time of loss. Oh yeah, and I want to dress up my blog and change my message board siggy! So much to do…so little time!

I’m so happy to be scrapping again! I lost my mojo for quite awhile but this sketch I found on a MySpace group really inspired me to try making a LO with a lot of white space. It was fun to push myself out of my box by trying a new scrapping style. Since there is so much white space, I had to be careful in choosing my materials because there is such a tight focus to the page. Every element has so much impact and that’s what I love about this one.
