Thinking Of You

Thinking Of You
Hello everyone! It is Ali, @funadventureswithali sharing an incredibly special layout with you today for the Simple Stories Design Team. I am grateful that Simple Stories has made this beautiful Remember collection, but this is the hardest layout I have ever created, and it is of my beautiful sister, Lisa.
I have not scrapped any pictures of her since she passed because it has been too hard for me. In fact, I gave up scrapbooking for a year after she passed. I then realized that she would not want me to do that because she was my biggest cheerleader and supporter. I hope I am making her proud.
I love the colors in this collection, they are the perfect neutral colors to document our loved ones. I wanted one of my favorite photos of my sister to be the focal point, so I used the oval chipboard frame to focus on her and her beautiful smile.
I picked three of my favorite patterned papers and hand stitched them after adhering to the cream cardstock. I used three assorted colors of thread to complement each paper.
The journal bits are perfect to document your feelings, a quote or a poem. I printed part of a poem that I found online about a girl who misses her sister. I felt a connection to this and decided to use it for my page because I am that girl who misses her sister very much.
I used a couple butterflies on my layout in memory of my sister. I was not aware of this happening during her burial, but my friend told me that a butterfly was dancing around me during the service. I am sure it was my sister who had not left my side. She is my guardian angel.
Do not be afraid to document your loved ones that have gone. I am so happy that I have one of my favorite pictures of my only sister documented in my scrapbook and it will be cherished for the rest of my life.
Love, Ali
