Chester would have been eleven years old today. Just over two months ago, we said goodbye. Trying to find my way through my grief, I created this layout in early January:


It’s a scraplift of Allison Waken‘s Jade layout. I loved the simplicity and neutral color scheme. I let my journaling run long to express a number of little things I miss about our sweet little furbaby.

Supplies: Robyn Meierotto’s Cupcake patterned papers; Karla Dudley’s Sherbert & Breezy papers; Shannon Hegarty’s Lighthearted papers; DHD’s Digital Scrapbooking Day 2011 Blog Hop kit (Karla Dudley ‘loved’ word art & Karen Funk’s stitches); Karen Funk’s Photo Frame Clusters 2; Just the Way You Are font.
