~Scrapping the weekend away~

I scrapped these three Layouts this weekend for the Tally Scrappers DT call.
I am so pleased with how they turned out.
I felt my mojo flowing this weekend I guess.

This is Justice's Great Grandfather who has passed on. He wont remember these pictures but it meant SO much for Grandpa to hold him, he loved him so much!
Great Grandma passed on right after these picture was taken.
She left me this lace and the sewing machine so this LO means so much to me.

This picture I took on our train weekend and I love it so much, I just love watching the boys in their "thinking" Moments.
I used glass tiles Cherrie sent me! Thanks Cherrie.
And check out the NEW Dream street papers! LOVEEEEEE them!!!!!!!!

This Layout is about our visit to Hawaii This picture I took in Haunama Bay.
Hawaii changed my life forever, or the people did anyways. So I love scrapping about it.

OK and for a more serious moment.
Some of you may know a Scrapping buddy of some friends is mine passed away tragically last week. It is terrible and sad. And Greta Adams is putting together a book of her work for her children from her blog.
This is the info.

Aleida was a big part of the scrappin community and on Sept 12, 2008 she was taken from her family and children and us suddenly. I cannot express how much i am shocked and hurt.. I cannot stop thinking about her husband and her 2 small children (bella and Josuha)

I had what i think is a brilliant idea to have her blog published into a hard back book for her children. My goal is to have 2 of them published. Any left over money will be sent directly to Brandon for any expenses he see's fit to use it for...

...More info on her blog

Cristal - OMGoodness - these layouts are amazing - I LOVE the scallops sewn on the lace in the first one - and that flower cluster is GORGEOUS - so touching of a LO. The scond one is just awesome too - you rocked those glass tiles and the photo is just one of my favorites!! The last one of Hawaii is just BEAUTIFUL - I love the way you did the butterflies and the colors compliment the photo so well.

Girl you are just on fire - your work is Stunning!!
