Scrapbook page Oh My!



It's taken a couple of years to get these pages done! Some of you know that Rhonda, my BFF passed away about 2 years ago. Funny I have blocked out the date... It's been very difficult for me. I still occasionally break out into spontaneos tears. I know, there's no calendar attached to grief. But...holy cow....I'd think by now I'd have gotten on with it... Well maybe now that the first pages are done.
My friend Marie sent me a wonderful RAK, and I sifted through the papers a couple of times. There was a page kit and I decided right then and there that these would be my first Rhonda pages. I got out some pix, I didn't even really pick out any 'special' ones. I knew if I took the time to pick out just the right pix, I'd never get started. So I played around with the whole thing for a couple hours and then stuck every thing down temporatily and went to bed. Then every day for about a week, I'd look at the pages, and fiddle with them or a bit then put them away again. Yesterday I said to my self "Self... get on with it!" and so I did. I put the finishing touches on and then took the photos. So here they are. What do you think? Honest opinions now.

What do I think? I think they came out great! I am so glad to have "met" you. Rhonda was lucky to have a friend like you. I'm so sorry that she is no longer in your life. Hugs to you!
