SCRAPPIN' AND MEMORIES

I finally completed the photo scrapbook for my eldest daughter, A's wedding. I have been working on it for some time now and was able to finish it at my annual Croptoberfest scrapbook workshop that I attended yesterday. I am so relieved that it was such a productive day for me. I usually only get to really scrap seriously two times a year during these kinds of events at Cassandra's. I am attaching some of my favorite photos from the wedding album to my blog.


It was also a bittersweet day for me...because it was just one day after the 5 year date of my good friend, Carla's passing from cancer. Carla introduced me to scrapbooking just months before her diagnosis. I could not help but think about her a lot yesterday...and I missed her sitting there with all of us, sharing laughter and our photos and stories.

I miss so many things about Carla. I miss her laughter and sense of humor and most of all, I miss spending time with her. But I have good memories that always make me smile. We met in high school and attended the same church and became fast friends--we raised our children together--hosting playgroups for our kids, birthday parties, camping trips and just spending time together. Besides scrappin' together, we also took a Wilton cake decorating class together and then began making masterpiece cakes for our kids on their birthdays...it was fun and I always think of her when I break out my cake decorating tools. I love ya and miss ya girlfriend!
