Pretty Polly!


This week has not been a great one in my personal nan, my rock was taken into hospital on Sunday after many months of being poorly and the news was given to us yesterday that she has very bad cancer. it is everywhere and spreading fast.... I am taking each day as it comes, some times I am happy thinking of our memories of times shared together, other times I am very sad to think that I will be losing a very very very special lady in my life. 

I was very grateful to have this challenge come along this week, as it has given me a chance to escape from thinking about the bad stuff and concentrate on creating something for all of us to remember.
I am also thankful that I am a scrap booker, because now my children who may be too young to remember their great grandmother in years to come, will be able to look back and see the amazing times they spent with her.
anyways the link to the challenge itself is here:

and here is my entry

Pretty Polly
I thought of this paper as soon as I saw the challenge. its a new range to my shop and is called Me Likey by Sassafrass. I just had to use it.... then I remembered that I had these pics of our recent trip to Bristol zoo, Lola feeding the brightly coloured Lorikeets. they work perfectly.

So Keilly and other lovely talented ladies at The Ribbon Reel challenge blog... thanks for this weeks challenge. it has helped me more than you will know
