As I mentioned last week I was at the funeral of my friends mum only to be told when I got home that another friend sadly lost her mum. Well that funeral was today. It was such a beautiful service and I don't know how anyone can keep composed enough to give a eulogy but she did and how proud I am of her. It was in difficult circumstances but it was so lovely to get together with three close friends. We have been together through marriages, divorces, births and I guess the rites of passage inevitably sees us together at funerals.
As I do when I am feeling emotional - I make a card. It is LOTV's It's my party. So love this image.
I used this image when it was my step daughters birthday last year because this is so Kayleigh.
It never took very much to get in a strop. Thankfully it didn't take much to get her out of one either.
Will somebody slap me and tell me "you have more crafty bits in your stash - you don't always have to use that butterfly"!!! Would be difficult though cos I love it.
