Scrap Therapy

11pm in a motel room in Wanganui the night before the funeral and I can be found scrapping! Therapy.

The funeral went as well as can be expected … it seems I have some ‘odd’ relatives … the kids all wanted to see Grandma’s body and were very interested in the burial process … Mum was worried Jessi was going to fall into the hole!

It’s been a full on couple of weeks … topped off today by Alexander’s Space/Alien party … coffee and coke can only do so much … right now I really need sleep!

  1. Hope you slept well Beverley, it sure has been an emotional week for you. Scrap therapy sure does help! Take care you.

  2. Beautiful heritage layout and as Trace said great therapy. I hope you got some well deserved sleep. Try and take it easy this week if thats possible. Glad the party went well and what fab weather you had for it. Happy Birthday Alexander.

  3. OMG Bev what a stunning stunning tribute to your Grandma!

  4. Ummmm – I’m AMAZED you would have supplies like that with you in the motel room! You’ve done a stunning job. Your Grandma was beautiful.
    Glad you are home – hope you get some rest. Happy Birthday to Alexander too.

  5. That’s a gorgeous layout, Beverley. I don’t think I would have been able to scrap something so beautiful in a motel room!
    I’ve been thinking of you heaps – really looking forward to seeing you this weekend!
    Get some sleep before we come and crash your party, ROFL! đŸ˜‰

  6. Thats a beautiful layout. You sure have had an emotional couple of weeks so hope you can take some time now for rest and relaxation.

    Happy Birthday to Alexander.

  7. Oooh lovely – I can see a family resemblance.

    LOL at the kid’s interest. Tim is always interested in the digger aspect of the funeral. He’d stay and watch them fill in the hole if he could.

    Been thinking of you and wondered how it all went.

  8. What a beautiful layout and such a nice way to spend the night before the funeral.

  9. love the layout – i so use scrapping as therapy too…. but not a gorgeous as yours though… welcome home and hope you get rested asap….. glad you doing ok

  10. Beautiful layout Bev – I am sure that I could not have done this in a motel room either. Lots of hugs and prayers coming your way. Hoping that life settles a little for you in the days ahead.

  11. Oh wow, what a stunning layout and beautiful tribute Beverley – you really look like your Grandma. Thanks for sharing your amazing layout!

  12. Beautiful LO Beverley. Hope things are settling down again now. Isn’t it interesting how curious children are about everything, including death.

  13. Hi Beverley, I’m so sorry to hear about your Grandma. Hope you’re doing ok.
