New York

I am entering this layout into two new challenge sites for me: More Than Words and Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo.

The challenge at  More Than Words is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge. 

Word Inspiration - CHANGE
Creative Challenge - OMBRE

I have been to Central Park NYC many times and now that my son and daughter-in-law live in New York City I try and visit at least twice a year. Each time I visit I love to go to Central Park and see the CHANGES from season to season. It's beauty never ceases to amaze me and I would have a hard time if I had to chose my favourite season in the park but I have to admit there is something especially enchanting when it is covered in snow. This photo was taken the day after the heaviest snow storm in NYC history in January 2016. Papers used are Maja Design.

The October challenge at Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo is a forest theme.

Moments to Remember

This is a layout made with a lot of love for my very good friend, Robyn. Her father passed away whilst I was visiting my kids in NYC and when I got back I got straight into my scrappy supplies to make a memory page for her. I knew her favourite colour was purple and I really liked the retro feel with these Maja Design papers so I altered the photos to B&W to suit. 
It brought tears to her eyes when I gave it to her and we both had a good cry. Then together we watched the Western Bulldogs win their first Grand Final in 62 years and there were more emotional tears as this was Robyn and her father's team they have supported all their lives. 
And there it was....another Moment to Remember. 

With Robyn's blessing I am entering this into the challenge at Scrapbook Boutique

RIP Darcy.
