I'm so excited to share with you my first Design Team assignment from THE PAPER MIXING BOWL! We have a fun sketch to follow this month with gorgeous colors. That link is on my blog. http://happyscrappn2.blogspot.com/2013/01/white-feather-pmb.html
January 4th my Uncle Marvin passed, unexpectedly. I had received the news that Friday morning and it was hard morning. Lots of tears, memories and regrets... wishing I had called, visited, mailed cards. I decided to go to the mailbox to get some fresh air. It was cold, damp and there on the on the asphalt was a white feather. It was rather odd to me and I decided to google the meaning. What I found gave me goosebumps ... it said... An Angel Has Visited. I found comfort in this... I incorporated the feather into the layout. The photos I used I took last year at our family reunion. Those have always been so important to our family. I didn't know those would be the last photos that we would have of Uncle Marvin. When I attended the funeral the following Monday... I was so touched that my photos were the ones being used. I felt like I was able to contribute.
All the while, on that Friday when I received the news... it was also my Mom's birthday. Needless to say I have hugged her a whole lot more since.
Thank you for sharing this special moment with me.
Rest in peace Uncle Marvin, you are missed and loved.
I was able to use my 3rd Eye Stamps - Kardiogram
Used some washi tape and flourishes and gears cut by my Cameo.
I also was able to use the fabulous butterflies made from Ms. Renea's Esty. Her link is on my blog.
