At Scrapping the Music this week the challenge is to scrap the song “Stand by Me”. I’ve been meaning to scrap along with Scrapping the Music’s challenges for some time now, and finally I have. Their designers turn out some awesome layouts.
The theme “stand by me” was full of possibilities. I had a photo of 3 of my girlfriends and I at the reception after Mom’s funeral and was thinking of scrapping that photo – those old girlfriends were standing by me in my time of need. I might still scrap that photo using that type of theme …
However, I changed my mind when I saw this photo of Mom and I. I had discovered it a year or so before Mom died, and had it enlarged and put it in a Mother’s Day layout in my very early days of scrapping (ha ha, early it’s not even quite 3 years I’ve been scrapping …). Mom saw the layout, and fell in love with the photo. She had forgotten it had ever existed so the photo’s sudden appearance took her completely by surprise. For Mother’s Day that same year I had it enlarged again and put into a beautiful frame for her. Sadly, that photo and frame is now mine … we stood by each other our whole lives. I have no regrets.
The paper is from DCWV’s Vintage Collage Stack, embellishments cut from same and from K & Company’s Serafera line.
