Keeping Memories Alive through Scrapbooking and Papercrafting

To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die.

                     ~Thomas Campbell


Almost one year ago, I made this cheerful and uplifting banner for a friend battling cancer.  Remember these gorgeous colors in Dream Pop?


Last night, Betty was finally made whole again when she went to be with our Lord. I cannot believe it has really been a whole year already since her battle began.

Keeping friends and family alive in our hearts through memories is so important.  As my memory fades, I am ever thankful to have the pictures and albums to remind me of faces long lost and moments long gone.  Scrapbooking is way more than a hobby...it is preserving memories of those we love and leaving them for those who love us.

I feel so blessed to have known someone with such SPARKLE in her step!  If anyone ever left a trail of glitter, it was Betty V.  Rest safely in Jesus arms until we meet, my friend!

  2. Amie, I'm so sorry. What a beautiful banner. I'm glad you have pix to remember you're friend by. Scrapbooking isn't just therapy for today when you create the pages but for the future too. Hugs to you, my sweet friend.
