ScrapbookSteals Peridot 3

You know I kind of feel like my scrappy sister, Sheryl Kloke, having already scrapped a Mid Week Mojo within hours of it being posted on

Today the guest sketcher, Marisa Torp, (another crafty friend) created a fun and simple sketch for the Peridot 3 Mid Week Mojo, which I was able to easily interpret to work with the next batch of photos to be scrapped in my memory album of dad.

Here's her sketch:

And here is my interpretation:

Again I have to thank that sweet Sam at Authentique Paper who sent me the most incredible care package after dad passed. She couldn't have known how in love I would be with everything that she sent and how perfectly the gorgeous collection of fall papers that she sent me—which I don't see listed on their website—and is currently downstairs so I can't even address it's proper name—would be for using on this page.  (Eeesh, how's that for some awful grammar!!  LOL!)  I even dug up some ancient embellies and worked the Tim Holtz Grungeboard into the layout. That stuff smells weird!

Those who know me know my inability to leave out the journaling, and given that I really want to journal about this journey I opted to swap out an embellishment blog to house my hideous handwriting.  Thinking about re-doing it on the computer, but it's not likely. ;)

So while my layout may not be an exact interpretation of the Peridot 3 sketch, it's one more layout done in my album about dad, along with another bucket of tears shed.

Gosh I miss him.
