August Variety Challenge at Nuts 4 Digi

Fond Memories

Death has been a played a major part of my family's lives this last two months, for those who don't know we've lost my mum and hubby's dad within 4 weeks of each other and we've been looking at a lot of old photos and many have been bringing back a lot of memories. So to follow on from last month's special memories theme, for the August variety challenge I would like for you to dig out any old photos, preferably black and white of a family member who has past, a little gloomy subject but sometimes we need to reflect on the good times to bring us back into the perspective of the present, it's also a part of the grieving process.

I must admit that I was a little lazy this month and used this stunning QP that was a freebie created by Linda Cumberland using her "A Sweet Love" kit. Well lazy isn't really the word I should have used, just very short of time and the end of the month caught up with me quicker than I would have liked.

If you'd like to participate in this challenge this month, then pop on over to Nuts4Digi and have a go and you'll receive a stunning participation prize too.

Lesley, I'm sorry to read about your losses and the struggles your family has endured recently. My heart is with you.

I have a box of old family photos sitting, waiting for me to sort and store them properly. Thank you for the reminder to treasure and reflect on even the "hard" ones.

Your page is beautiful. Sometimes there just isn't enough time (or energy) to do all that we would like to do. I am thankful for all who share talents, skills, knowledge... It makes life so much easier for everyone!

So sorry to hear about your Mother and your hubby's Father. It is so hard when our parents are gone. I lost my Dad in 2005 and my hubby's dad passed in 2006. Then in 2012 my sister passed away and it has been very hard for me as we were very close. Take care and hold on to all those memories.
