Dirty Scraps...

I stumbled upon this blog... and I found it to be totally refreshing. I, along with most scrappers, tend to scrap happy and joyful moments... positive memories that we want to remember for years and years and eventually pass on to our generations... we want to leave a legacy. Well, at Dirty Scraps...
you can scrap life... including sad and angry and negative times... we all know life is made up of those things too. So, I find it quite a challenge, but something that will show my family that life stinks sometimes... but you deal with it, manage it, and go on with your life... So, this layout is about a moment... good or bad, that you will never forget or perhaps changed you. I created one about Moses. All of you close to me know I still miss Moses... and even though I cried while creating this, it feels good to leave him in my legacy as well... Thanks for looking.

Blessings,

Great LO Heidi...I am slowly scrapping John's cancer...while it is a nasty horrible disease it is a part of our lives and like you said so well it is a part of our legacy as well. I have done a few 'sad' LO's as when a bunny we tried to save died...but I too tend to scrap the joyous things.

This is a beautiful layout and I completely understand your love for your pet. I scrapbook about my dogs all the time and I've even done a few who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge too. You conveyed missing and loving Moses so well in this layout. Very touching. So glad you found our blog and that you played along in this challenge. Hope to see more of your work in the future.
