About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

My Dad

Today is the anniversary of my Dad's passing some 14yrs ago. I did this page of him a while back but thought it nice to share today. Dad passed away some 3 months after I was married, he was only 68yrs. The last time I saw him was on our honeymoon as we popped in to say "hello" on our way past, I never thought it was really to say "goodbye"! Loosing him so suddenly still smarts with me and tears well up, especially if I hear "Amazing Grace" played. I'm off to light him a candle at our local church.
All My Love Dad.

BJ, yesterday must have been as hard for you as it was for me too. I miss my lovely Dad too, he lived in Canada and died 10 days before my visit so I did not get to say goodbye either. Your page is a lovely tribute though and it is beautiful. Hugs, Anne x

What a lovely tribute to your Dad BJ. As you know, my situation was difficult recently too and yesterday was sad but we get through it don't we? I'm not converted to scrapping (even though you try!) but I do like this page and how much do I like that alphabet??!!
