Sorry for going missing! Last week was an extremely bad week, and I am still feeling pretty down. We had two unexpected deaths in our family last week. First a very close dear friend and family member (our son's father-in-law) passed away suddenly Weds night. It was quite unexpected and we are going to miss him dearly. He was a great guy and would do anything for you--not to mention he had a great sense of humor. We spent quite a bit of time with him through the years and it won't be the same without him. Than Thursday morning we received a call telling us that one of our nieces passed away unexpectedly as well. She was only 25. She suffered from sleep apnia and passed in her sleep. She lives in Washington and we are unable to make it to the funeral, but sent our sincere sympathies to the family. This is why I have been MIA the last week. We had some out of state family staying with us this weekend too, but I was able to get a couple of LO's done. It helps me to work on LO's and keep my mind off the pain I am feeling. The first LO I would like to post is of our son's Father-in-law having fun with the grandchildren. He is in the bottom picture, and he was enjoying the day with family at a company picnic last year. I used Michelle McCoy's kit "Beary Cherry" which can be found at her store here.
Now for some gooood news. Kim Broedelet has a new kit up for sale. It is sooooo pretty. Here are the previews of the new kit "Spring Passion".

Here is the LO I made from her kit. It is a picture of a rose that my dear honey bought me for my birthday 2 years ago. I used Jazzy's WA from her Nature set. The frame is an action by Wendyzine called cut and cluster.

Kim is offering a freebie sampler for all of you. You can get it on her blog. Here is the preview of her freebie. So go to Kim's blog and pick up this cute sampler.

I would also love to show you the LO Jazzy made from Kim's kit.

And Jazzy made the frame and wordart to go with her kit and she is offering it for free on her blog. So if you would love to have it head over there and pick it up. While you are there give her blog a read--she is a very talented designer and friend.
Well I have to get going now. Till next time take care and have fun!!

sorry to hear about the family losses. It's so hard to accept the fact that you will not have someone still in your life. Glad that you can find something that helps put the pain on a back burner at least for awhile. And scrapping is a wonderful way to keep people with us in our thoughts.
