52 in 10 In Remembrance

Woo Hoo I have done another page for my 52in10 album, last few prompts just haven't been right for me but this one was so very right.
Karen of Dolly's Dreamings set us to scrap about those we have loved and lost, and although I haven't done much journalling about how I feel losing two very special men in my life I did rather enjoy doing this layout.
It is a little bit sombre but I felt that was appropriate.
They Died too Young

I may yet do a page about my mother but that will be far harder to do as the way that she died still stings so, she more or less took her own life by refusing to eat and drink for nearly a fortnight. She had wanted to die for the last two years of her life and at 92 I suppose she had just had enough and couldn't fight the depression any longer. I still feel guilty that she was in a home rather than me looking after her but at the time I felt I couldn't do it on my own without my husband to support me.

Sorry to bring in such a depressing note. So here in much lighter vein is the layout I did last night, my eldest grandson enjoying the slide
Whee

Lovely pages Mary, if rather sad! Glad you ended on a positive note - now I wonder who your UKS scrapping friend (singular) is ... or could it be that a little s has gone walkabout and that you have lots and lots of scrapping friends on UKS :o)

What a poignantly beautiful layout the first is, Mary. The second one is so fun - both great in their own way! xx

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
