"Junie" ***Swirlydoos October Kit ~Lavender Escape~
Hi scrapping friends!
I really am loving Swirlydoos new October kit.."Lavender Escape". It has so much to work with..very versatile with all the new Websters, and matching goodies.
My daughter found this photo of me and my Uncle Junie when I was little, and I knew I had to scrap it! He was the world to me. He was truly a great person. Never a bad word, always caring. He was born with Downs Syndrome and my Grandmother was told by her Dr.s back then, to put him in a hospital..well she told them all to go to hell. She raised him and took care of him until the day he passed away. I remember alot of those days. He loved his TV Guide collection, Country music, and typing. This is the lo I'd like to share:

I rolled up a corner of the paper and tied it with twine..adding a embellie from Tim Holtz. I also had to journal. Sometimes I'll journal and sometimes I won't..but with this lo, I wanted it speak for me.
The journaling reads:
If ever there were a time
that I miss the most,
It is the time I spent
You were always so full of love,
so full of life..always kind and caring.
People saw you as different.
People were cruel back then.
I wish you were here today,
To see how much people have changed.
I wish you were here.
collecting your TV Guides,
Playing on your typewriter.
I wish you were here, but you're not.
It makes me sad, but I understand.
It was time for you to spread your wings..
Well thank you for letting me share this with you!! Take care and till next time..Happy Scrappin!
