Yikes!! She Made a Scrapbook Page!!

Good morning everyone!! Don't be shocked now but I actually made a scrapbook page!!! My DGD Autumn loves to scrapbook and when she was here she created several pages. When she left, these pictures were still on the table so I decided to work them up into a page. This was my parents last Christmas in their Iowa home...they moved to Texas the next May. Also, this was my niece Erin's last Christmas. She passed away the next spring. Erin was such a sweet and precious girl....she had a heart transplant when she was only 19 days old and she lost her battle with heart disease a day before her 15th birthday.
I used Bo Bunny dp for the background and lots of diecut and punched snowflakes with pearl accents. Since purple was Erin's favorite color, I used a wrinkled purple ribbon and some lace to finish it off.

This is for the Ooh La La Creations Challenge to use a Christmas theme, Outlines Monday Challenge to use lace, Stamp-n-Doodle Challenge to use ribbon, diecut/punch, and pearls, and Totally Papercrafts Challenge to make a holiday design.

Thanks for dropping by...have a super fabulous day!!!

You've created a beautiful memory, Joan. So sad to hear of a child losing their life so early.
Your page is wonderful with all those pretty snowflakes!

So tragic to fight so hard and lose the battle but you have created a lovely keepsake.

This will be something you'll always treasure. And it's beautiful. A wonderful way to preserve the memory of her.

Joan, this is a lovely page but I don't see any Outlines stamps on it. Did you use one, a requirement to enter the Outlines Monday challenge blog.
