This page is for a challenge on one of my group threads here. It as about friendship and who has been there for you to pick you up...twist was a garden gnome...so yes, there he is, and yes, I've taken another pick of the layout w/out the little fellow lol...
"My sister; someone I can rely on to tell me when I'm wrong, to listen when I'm down, to help me out when I need help, to care for how I feel when those close to me make me sad.
Her name is Margaret but always known to me as Peggy, my adopted sister who didn't do it easy growing up. My parents had a son; then the much wanted baby daughter. Unfortunately she only lived a few hours and mum was advised not to have any more children, so she adopted, having always wanted a daughter.
Then 2 years later I was born, and although through my growing up years, I did not notice Peggy was treated differently, once she had married and left home, and I had grown up mentally, I started to think about the way things had been, and even now she will tell me things I haven't throught of and immediately I can recall them, things that hadn't been right between my parents and the way they treated me differently to Peggy. Things that these days would not be acceptable despite their love for her.
Despite all that, she is my crutch, my friend, my someone special and only person I can talk about absolutely anything with, I guess you can say she is and always has been ...my only rock".
I used Cricut cartridge 'Stamping' for the outer border and unfortunately I didn't take that good a pic of it so the left edge got a little distorted and cut in the straightening process I'm sorry. But the pic w/out the gnome is fine of course..lol..
