Yes I have definitely been Missing In Action for the last couple of weeks.
And unfortunately most of what has happened while I was M.I.A, were very sad events.......starting with Felicity's car accident & the write-off of the Magna (thankfully she wasn't injured) & ending with my father-in-law's funeral. Although his passing was a blessing in the end because he went in his sleep, without alot of pain, it has still left us with heavy hearts & a sad finality. My husband is now without his parents & I think that is just one of the saddest things that we have to go through in our lives.

May you Rest in Peace Pop............

Today is our big boy's 23rd Birthday, wow so much has happened over those 23 years and your Dad & I are really proud of the person you have become. You will always hold a special place in my heart Joshua.

Over the last couple of months I have been scrapping some old photos of Josh that used to be in one of those collage type frames, which had broken & has been sitting in my cupboard for years. I don't scrap Joshua alot, mainly because he dislikes having his photo taken, so I have really enjoyed using these 'little boy' photos of him. And scrapping them in the smaller size of 8.5" x 11" means that I complete them quickly, using scraps & can file them into an A4 display folder. I'm not sure that he really appreciates the whole procedure but I know that his girlfriend Alicia, enjoys looking at the LOs & reading the little anecdotes about his early life.

This is my sample for this month's Stylist Challenge at ScrapBoutique. I used Em's Roast instructions from last month's CC for it.

Why don't you give it a try???
