Life's Journey, New this week!

A few weeks ago I discovered that a dear young friend of mine unexpectedly passed away.  I have since learned that she had 'Long QT' syndrome, an electrical problem within her heart.  Her name was Shannon, and she was 33 years young with a 7 year old son, Gavin.   Shannon's immediate family knew of her condition - but she didn't want others to know, fearing people might treat her with kid gloves.  She was probably right :)   Shannon was full of life and love, and lived each and everyday to the fullest.   I admired her spirit, and will miss her so very much!    This week's release, Life's Journey is a tribute to Shannon and her zest for life.   A trust fund for her little boy has been set up for his future education, and 100% off all sales from this collection will be given to Gavin's Trust.    The collection is a big one - and filled with wonderful things to scrap your Life's Journey with :)    It will be on sale for 30% off thru Sunday, August 18th at midnight :)

and a little inspiration!   I scrapped the top layout - it's my friend Shannon, and her son Gavin :)

I have some beautiful clusters to go with stay tuned :)  -Kim


  1. I love looking at all the beautiful layouts. As I was taking it all in I realized what a gift its been. This self taught journey of learning to scarp. How we can take a photo, that might seem boring by most standards. But, you add that photo to a carefully and most importantly, lovingly crafted layout, and magic happens! This plain Jane photo becomes stunningly STORY worthy...

  2. So sorry that your young friend passed away leaving a little boy without his mother. It's great that his grandmother is stepping in to raise him. You have a generous heart to donate the sales for him! I'll be back home on Sunday to purchase the kit! Thank you for the NL freebie :) the papers are gorgeous as always!! Love your new kit!

  3. My condolences to you on your loss. Thank you for sharing the beautiful layout you made honoring Sharon and Gavin. I know that he will treasure it always. I just bought the lovely kit, my purchase comes with prayers for Sharon's family.


Thanks for stopping by!
