I made this layout with three challenges in mind.
First I used the sketch at "THROUGH THE EYES OF ROCHELLE SPEARS" I love banners so this was a fun sketch to play around with and find the papers and combinations I wanted to work with. Rochelle always has the best sketches.
Next I went with part two of the scrappy friends challenge and used the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge with "SCRAP WITH STACY" these tic-tac-toe challenges are always fun. I did a diagonal row top left to bottom right. Cork, Wood Stickers and Wood.
Then last but far from least I'm entering this layout at "SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF" I don't always have a lot of pictures of myself so this challenge always pushes me to be sure I'm in the pictures sometimes too. Challenge #81 is "Thankful" and I'm thankful for my brother. This was taken in early May and it's my brother and Dad and I together, this was about the time I started spending most of my time at my brothers house, pretty much 24/7 before my Dad passed in August. I'm so thankful for all that time we had together. At the beginning of it Dad was feeling good, but the last 3 weeks the cancer got worse and worse but I'm still thankful I was right there with him until the end.
