Toby ~ October 2010 – September 2011 Teddy ~ October 2010 – October 2011
Most people already know through UKS or my furbaby blog (which I have now closed) that back in September & October I lost 2 of my precious kitties, Teddy & Toby. I was devastated. Many people don’t understand the bond between humans and animals, and they certainly don’t understand me and my love for my furbabys and thats fine, but to me personally it was a very big blow and I still shed many a tear when I think of them.
I had photo’s ready to scrap of both boys as I have a dedicated album just for our furry family but then when they passed away I didn’t have the heart to scrap them, until I saw a challenge on the My Creative Scrapbook forum to create a layout with a hidden pocket. I thought it would be perfect for my photo’s and I could create an ‘In Memory’ style page for the boys using my favourite pics.
This is Teddy & Toby – Our Story
I created the pocket with a gusset as I wanted it to hold quite a thick booklet style insert
This is the booklet insert:
And the reverse side of the booklet with the journaling about their story and the time they spent in our lives. I changed the journaling many times in between a tear or two.
Im really pleased with my finished page, and even more pleased that I have now scrapped these photo’s and the layout has taken its place in my furbaby album.
Thanks for stopping by,
