Thank you....

gosh, where do i start.....
i really just need to pop by and say 

Thank You  for all

your messages comments e-mails,
they have all been so heart warming  and awesome to me and my family
lots of things have been going on in the last mouth...

 ...looking forward to getting home in january to seeing my sisters and brother 
...sharing stories with each other,
...going to the places mum loved,
...setting her free at a place we all loved so much

...it's been hard, 
i've cried a river...
i missed seeing her face for the very last time...
i missed holding her hand for the very last time..
i missed us all together for the very last time...

... but i will never ever forget her ...
she was my MUM...

----------------------------------------------------------------------
i've got some projects and publication to catch up on so that's what i think i will do over the next couple of days.
thanks so much for being beautiful friends

YAY!!!!! I have been thinking about you so much and have missed you terribly!!! Even though we have never met, you are part of my scrapbooking family! I wanted to flick you an email and say I know exactly how you feel, but I didn't want you to think I was a stalker!! lol.

I have only just scrapped the first page featuring a photo of my dad since my dad who died in 2007. It is my part of my entry for the Scrapbooking Memories Masters. It is such a great feeling and I am so proud of what I have done with them and what they mean to me.

Time will heal everything but never takes away the memories. That is the perfect thing about scrapbooking. My kids never met my dad, but I can paint them a picture so they can see how much I loved him!!!

I have had some wonderful scrapbooking things happen lately that I have wanted to share with you, and cannot wait to see some more of your amazing work!! I just get so excited.

So I will finish this massive comment in saying that I am so glad you are feeling better and that you will get to spend time with your family to reflect and be together. You have so many admirers and fabulous friends to help get you through. xoxo
