I'm still pluggin' away at making a dent in my January Counterfeit Kit. Shortly after I made my kit, I just went through my little recipe box of photos to see which ones would match my kit, and these two little pics of Jason's mom with Brenna 2 years ago were begging to be scrapped!
This is the sketch from Let's Get Sketchy that I used:
I've been wanting to take part in Scrap it with a Song's Challenges for a while, but it hasn't worked out until this very moment. This month's "Rock" challenge is to get inspired by Adele's song, "Rumour Has It", so that's where I got my title, but it also helped lead my journaling. This page was emotionally difficult for me to do because we've recently found out that Jason's mom has Alzheimer's. She's changed a lot since these photos were taken, and although she remembers our names and who we are right now, I know there will come a time when she won't know any of us any more. I can't help but feel sad for Brenna - the other kids will have happy memories of time spent with their grandma, but Brenna probably won't. I'm hoping pages like this will be valuable to her when she's grown, just to let her know that even if she doesn't remember, her grandma loves her so much!
Wow, almost makes me cry again! I've been a bit of a basket case these past few days what with trying to find day care and other stress. Yesterday morning, I thought I had it all figured out, only to realize in the afternoon that I was mistaken. The lady I thought would be able to watch Brenna twice a week has decided that she does not want to watch Brenna at all - apparently Brenna is not self-sufficient enough for her. Huh. Soooo, that sends me back to the drawing board. Argh! Why can't there just be an abundance of well-qualified, loving individuals that want to take care of little kids when I want them to?
