All About Eve - Idol

Here is my idol... Nigel. He died 3 years ago, this August of Acute Myloid Leukaemia. He was my BIL, but treated me as his sister & friend. He helped me so much over the ten years he was in my life & often just by talking me through stuff, like how to paint walls etc.. I learnt new skills & had the pleasure of the reward of doing it myself, something else he taught me too. He loved my cardmaking & crafts.
Papers are all BG Scarlets' Letter. Rub ons "MY" Narratives. "Idol" American craft thickers, cream soda. Words are black dymo in tag. The tag has personal journalling on the reverse. Blossom inked black & clock, some I printed onto inkjet transparency. Scroll stamps, Design Objectives. I really love this page, it is only the second one I have managed to complete in almost two months!

This is beautiful Paula, when you mentioned you would do this challenge on my blog, and that it would be special for you... I was thinking about your BIL... very good tribute to him. Love the BG you've used!! You still can scrapbook sweetie!

Paula, this is absolutley stunning. I love the colours and design and everything, and I know how much your BIL meant to you, so understand how poignant it must have been to make it.

A beatiful tribute to that special man.

And you can certainly still scrap girl, this proves it.
