"When some you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure."
I love that quote. Here is another layout I made from the "Loss" kit at Scrapbooking from the Inside Out". This theme brought up many memories of my Abuela (grandmother).
I hope that you can read this!(Click on it to make it bigger!)
My Abuela is on the left and mother in the right...
tada...the complete layout...
Here is a quote from Rachel, founder at Scrapbooking From the Inside out.
I'm here to remind you that you matter, too! Your story needs to be told by you, both for you as well as for future generations. One of the most important gifts you can give your children is the gift of you-who you truly are and what you think and feel. And most importantly, in the process of telling your story, in all its beauty and depth, its glorious times, messy moments, and painful lessons, you will be transformed.
My Abuela passed away when my oldest was born; There are so many questions that I would've like to ask her but can't. I have a box of pictures from her with no names or explanations that I would love to know about. I scrap for me (the creative process as well as working through my own things- "scraptherapy") but I also scrap for my children and our future generation; I want them to get a feel for their family, who we are and what we believe. Some layouts are fun and full of joy, some have been painful but just as important. I scrap like the person I am, honest and real.
