Play Time and a Funeral........

I know, I know, it sounds like a movie title :) Hubby's grandfather passed away last week and the family gathered for the funeral this past Monday. "Grandpa Gene" was 90+ years old and his health had been failing of late. It's still sad to say good bye to the patriarch of the family, but our faith helps us to know that he is now with his beloved Nelda. Grandpa Gene always told us that when he got to heaven he would pat God on the back and tell him what a wonderful job he had done with all of this down below on earth. I'm sure his message has now been delivered. The day of the funeral began with frozen pipes in our kitchen. It was 15 degrees below zero and winds were forecast to blow up to 30 miles per hour! Way Cold!! Our family had some great laughs and rememberances of Grandpa. Yes, tears were shed as well, but only because we will miss his remarkable sense of humor, not because his passing was tragic. In the short years that I was lucky enough to get to know Grandpa Gene he impressed me with his dedication to family, belief in God and his pride in serving our country during WWII.

Amanda at In A Fog Designs has a cool new kit out titled Play Time. It is available at Scrappy Thoughts and Bouquet of Pixels. Amanda has put together bright, vibrant colors with fun embellishments. She's also got a great word art kit to go with all the papers and goodies! Here's an image of the kit and a few sample layouts.
