Crafty Ann's Challenge #68 - Memories are made of this

It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.  This time the challenges is "memories are made of this".  This can be interpreted in different ways eg vintage style which could be a card/project or something like a scrapbook page/mini album route with memories of any vintage - even yesterday!
I have to admit I had the idea of a scrapbook page but wasn't sure if I could emotionally make it as this Monday saw the first anniversary of my mum's sudden death.  I decided it would be good for me so I went for it.  I have used items from Crafty Ann's Tempting Turquoise Scrapbook Kit, Crafty Ann's Cream Dream Scrapbook Kit and Crafty Ann's Sweet Sage Scrapbook Kit.  I used Craft Artist Professional to do the scrapbook layout and added many layers, used different scissor/brush effect, added lots of embellishments from the three kits I used and finally added a picture of my mum taken when we all went to Skegness four weeks before she died, not knowing this would be her last holiday with us.

As you can imagine this scrapbook page was very hard to make with lots of tears shed but I was pleased with the outcome in the end.  Monday wasn't an easy day.  

I am entering this scrapbook page into the following challenges:

Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Robyn's Fetish - Anything goes
Try it on Tuesday - Anything goes
