Cherish the time spent together

Hi all,

The layout I am sharing with you today is a special one to me. The photo is of my uncle, dad and my Nonna (grandma) Mary. My Nonna, as we call her, is 87 in a couple of weeks. She has dementia and is now a resident at our local hospital. She can no longer speak, and just looks at you with this blank expression on her face. It is so heartbreaking seeing her like this! She was pretty much a second mum to me, my sisters and cousins growing up. Now it is our turn to feed and look after her.

This photo was taken on Christmas Day 2008. Nonna was in her glory with all the grand kids and great grand kids around her. She had a constant smile on her face.
Today I went to visit her and put a copy of this layout on her cupboard right next to her bed where she can see it.

Now, about the layout.

Scrap Therapy had a Cybercrop on the weekend. I made this layout based on Sandra D's sketch for challenge 3, but have added more flowers to it since uploading into the ST gallery.

I have used My Minds Eye Just dreamy 2 papers, Prima flowers and say it in crystals flourish, brads, Fiskars border punch, jumbo leaf punch, Kaisercraft quote on vellum and other bits and pieces from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by!
