Scrapping the hard things....

 On Dr Suess day my niece posted this picture of my brother with the quote "Sometimes you never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory" I had never seen this picture.... so it was a little hard to swallow. I still can not believe he has been gone 16 years. So I decided to grab this photo off facebook and  keep it where I can love it. Robbie loved his girls more than anything and this picture truly captures that for me.
I used sketch number #187 from Sketches in Thyme

 I really love this sketch. I had a bit of a hard time with the layering and felt that my end product was a bit one dimensional. I love the look and think I will really do some digging and see if I can't improve on the next one.
Here is my layout.
Everything except for the brown wire and the little embellie that says "with great love" came from the Jack and Jill collection by Echo Park. So it went together quickly.
  I really appreciate you taking a moment to share in my messy life. I hope today brings you many reasons to smile.
