Peacock Love

I love using sketches!!! They help me get started when I have nothing in mind for my lo. Bo Bunny put up a sketch contest on Friday. This worked out for me since Bo Bunny is also the Manu of the month over at I love when one lo works for two entries!!! I used the new Peacock Lane collection. I love the purple and turqoise!! My sister took my neice down to the river last weekend, thankfully she had on a purple swimsuit so the pics worked well with the Peacock Lane.

Come on over to and show us your Bo Bunny lo's for a chance to win a prize!

Just days after my last post my family suffered a terrible tragedy. My beautiful son Gavin has gone to be with Jesus. The loss of a child is the most difficult and near unbearable thing. I am thankful that I am a scrapbooker and have all of these wonderful memories and pictures of Gavin. It took a month for me to be able to scrapbook again. I was inspired by a picture and paper from the MME Love Me Do line and a sketch from MME. Below is my lo and I could not be more pleased with the result.

The journaling reads:
You had been home sick for almost a week when I took this picture. We had read books and had lots of snuggle time. I grabbed the camera to capture this moment because you had come to me and said "You're my best friend!" It was the sweetest thing. I had no idea it would be the last photo of you. There is no doubt in my mind that you know I love you with all my heart. I know that my love floats up to you in heaven and I feel your love floating down to me. Mommy loves you, always.

I hope you find some inspiration from my lo.

Thanks for looking!
