this week


for Scrapping the Music the song is You'll be in my Heart by Phil Collins. I knew right away who I was going to scrap, you see last year on Nov. 5th my brother Michael passed away. I have been dreading the one yr. anniversary of his death, but I knew that I had to honor his memory. So I created this layout in honor of him, because he will always be in my heart. It was such a healing experience, yes I cried as I held his photo in my hand, as I created the layout, and when it was done I cried, but I know he's in a better place.

Very rarely am I at a loss for words...but, I am now! It is a beautiful layout but even more so because of your heartfelt message.
Sending hugs and support to you.
