Monday, May 13, 2013 Peridot 2

Well the facelift of the blog is coming along. I really should just convert to WordPress as that is what I use for work, and I'm wayyyy  more familiar with it, but alas, now it's become kind of a personal inner quest to make this one look purdy.

I think for the moment I'm content with the exception of the little green flower doo-hickeys. I want em gone. I'll have to hit up the hunny when he's not quite so frazzled from the boys' incessant whining tonight. I'm already toast. Burnt.

I really love the Peridot 2 sketch at Then again maybe it has something to do with the fact that my dear friend Melodee is the one creating them now. Either way, I've decided to start on the memory album of the last few months of my dads life and think that I'll interpret each sketch each week for the project.

Here's the sketch:

And here is how I've interpreted it:

This wasn't an easy layout to do, but I do love words, and I love journaling. I'm hoping that by the time I'm done with this album that it will be a greatly cherished keepsake that will bring me lots of comfort and joy.

I have to thank my dear friend Sam at Authentique Paper for the lovely Seasons:Summer collection, which from the moment I saw it I knew I wanted it to be a priority in the album that I'm making about dad. 

It's just. so. pretty. <3 p="">

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in the memories of dad with me!

This layout is gorgeous and the journaling is so powerful. I hope that there is healing as you create this album for yourself and for your family.

PS On a lighter note, I like the blog facelift!

Kristy, this LO is amazing! I know it's not going to be easy putting all your thoughts and memories down while the hurt is still fresh, but it will be such a wonderful collection of a life well lived for your family to treasure! Thanks for sharing this with us! Big Hugs my friend,
