Love You Scrapbook Layout

Today I have a 12x12 Scrapbook layout to share with you all.

This layout is a very special layout as it is of my Grandad and a special tattoo I had done in his memory.

I absolutely LOVE how this layout came together, The paper I used to do my layout on is a Shimelle paper.

My Grandad was and still is my hero, my shining star who i miss dearly. He had Alzheimers, Dementia, and Cancer behind his eye he fought so hard and for so long but on the 29th October 2003 he closed his eyes one last time. No longer in pain but at peace but left a BIG hole in our hearts.
My Grandad held on for my Nan's birthday which is 28th October.

Here is some close up pictures of my layout.

The sentiment above which is in the middle of my photographs fits so so well and is so true as my Grandad is my sun my moon and all my stars.

Here is a close up of the picture of my Grandad, This is my favourite picture of him and one i cherish the most. That face and twinkle in his eye says it all. He was one of the most amazing gentlemen you would have ever met, a family man who adored us all. This man taught me so much as i was growing up we did everything together. Not a day goes by that i don't think about him. 

Here is a close up of the picture of my tattoo which is on my left forearm and it reads "My Guardian Angel Grandad 28.11.25 - 29.10.03

I hope you like what I have done with this layout and I hope it gives you some inspiration to scrap those photographs of your lost loved ones. These can be the hardest layouts to do but can also be the most rewarding to know you have accomplished that difficult hurdle to make these precious photographs into a work of art.
