"Forever in our hearts" DT creation for The Scrapbook Store

Hello and welcome back!
I hope you are well wherever you are in the world!
Today I am sharing the first of my Design Team creations for The Scrapbook Store.
Suzanne McGregor has spoilt me this month and supplied me with a goodies box full of 
Bo Bunny's "Penny Emporium" collection.


I have titled this layout "Forever in our hearts".

I found these photos of my youngest daughter with our now departed fur friend "Sam". She was 14 when she passed and it so broke our hearts. So much so that I went without a animal companion for a good time after she left us. I can't explain why but she was such an integral part of our family and it just didn't seem right to replace her. 
Sam towards the end was suffering from a rare form of skin cancer. It took a huge toll on me, looking after her every day bathing her cancers and bandaging her so to keep her comfortable. Not once did she cry or bite or look the littlest bit sad. So to make the decision that she was too leave us was the hardest thing I have ever done and it really still tears me apart today. We all miss her especially my youngest....this is for her.


I have rubbed over my resins using some Viva Inks Gold to give them some dimension.


Look at the wonderful cracks made with Finnabair's art Extravagance Texture Paste - White Crackle. I love to lay it over thickly on distress inked chipboards. The paste soaks up the inks whilst setting. Gives it a little extra hit of colour.


Here you can see the ink that has popped through the Crackle Paste......just love this effect!


From another angle.


And another.....


I have added in my usual bits of dyed cheesecloth. I dyed this piece using some Spun Sugar Distress Ink and then watered it down a little to soften the colour.


Well that is all from me today.
