The Last Photo Together

I decided to scrap one of the last photos taken of Rod's Dad with his Mum today, little did we know at the time (Christmas 2011) it would be one of the last photos ever taken of him.  The 26th of this Month would have been their 50th Wedding Anniversary, so I have been thinking of both of them a lot this week.  I chose to play along with The Robin's Nest Page Map Challenge over on the Chattering Robins Blog.  This is the first A4 Scrap Page I have ever made, but I liked the sketch and thought that if I wanted to I could mount this onto a backing board and it would make a nice gift with a stand to give to Rod's Mum.



I pretty much stuck to the sketch other than adding some extra stamping and flowers to the bottom of the layout.  The Robin's Nest is one of the regular sponsors of the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog so I have received a lot of their lovely glitter papers and embellishments to use for creating my Party Time Projects, so I thought would use some of their left over products on my layout today.






The floral patterned paper is called Glitter Mocha Daisy and the Orange Dew Drops (love these things) are both from The Robin's Nest Online Store.  The Black, Grey, Silver and Brown Cardstocks are all from Stamping Up as are the flourish stamps (Scribble This Stamp Set).  The Golden Yellow Ribbon (Seam Binding) is from 3 Girl Jam.  Both punches and dies have been used for the flowers.

I am hoping to tidy up my craft room tomorrow as it is in a bit of a mess, also I need to make sure nothing has gone astray or been taken by my kleptomaniac cat who has been taking off with anything she can get her hands on if she gets a chance to get into my room.  I will be spending a bit of time creating over the weekend with swap commitments and some orders all needing to be done, so I will have to keep my door shut.  It's not just my craft room she has been stealing items from, she has a fascination with the plugs from both bathroom basins, sticky tape and pens.  The upside is that she is taking everything to the one hide-y hole, which is under our bed .

How thoughtful of you to create this beautiful page in memory of your father-in-law. I'm sure your kindness will be appreciated.
Love hearing that you cat likes to take your possessions, hope she's not planning on having a yard sale!
