Sad Day

Today is not one I've been looking forward to - My beloved dad's funeral and ironically it would have been Mum's birthday too. To honour my dad,  I used a poem he wrote as a young man and made it into a picture, using "Butterfly Garden"  kit for Serif Craft Artist.

A tribute to my dad

On Friday 17th May 2013 my beloved dad lost his fight for life, he was 84, This is a poem he wrote as a young man, he was always saying he might get it published, but never got round to it. I remember sitting at the side of him as he recited it to me over and over again until it was emblazoned into my mind.
As a lasting tribute to him, I played around with it in Serif Craft Artist and it's going to be framed, and a copy given to both of his grandsons, I hope they and their children will look at it often and remember how much he loved them all.
RIP DAD - I love you, and always will.
Reunited again with mum - the love of your life

Wow Cobie is 7........

Cant believe Cobie is 7 where has all this time gone, it's hard to believe 4 years ago he was so poorly after being diagnosed with leukaemia, he's been such a brave little boy and thank the lord he has come out the other side no worse for wear, he's now just a typical cheeky little boy and we love him so much....
This image is from Lili of the Valley and coloured with Promarkers

Challenge 87 - Fussy & Fancy

This challenge is vintage over on Fussy & Fancy pop along and have a go, it may be the start of a whole new style for you too.
The stamped image was from a freebie with "Creativity" magazine (if anyone missed out on this set I have a spare one) never done vintage before and it felt so strange sticking all those elements on, thought at first I'd overdone them, but the more I look at it propped on my mantlepiece the more I like it, who knows this could be the start of a new style for me.

I'm just loving this Frou Frou digikit cd from made especially for Craft Artist on Serif. It was so easy just put the elements together, click and print, the Princess sentiment is from Gingers House
