I created this layout without any idea of what pictures I wanted to put on it. As I pondered what pictures to use, I looked at the beautiful sun and bright colors and knew that pictures of my dear friend, Stacey, would be perfect on these pages. Stacey just had a knack of bringing light and joy into everyone's lives and I knew these Penelope papers and embellishments would do her justice.
I had saved different photos from the news articles about the accident that took her life and I wasn't sure I wanted to scrapbook them, but I decided to include them but hide them behind other pictures using some 3x3 Flip Flaps. There are a total of four Flip Flaps on this layout because I wanted to keep a lot of the pictures people had posted in memory of her. I didn't know what to journal, so much is in my heart and I already wrote so much of my feelings on my other blog, l2breathe.blogspot.com (Sunshine and Shadows, Just Be Happy, Dear Stacey), that I just opted for a simple statement.
Doing an "in memory of" scrapbook page is not easy, but I know this layout will make me happy when I see it as I remember Stacey, my Sunshine!
