Birthday Memories

Today would have been my mums 68th birthday but very sadly she passed away suddenly last year. I've made a layout using a sketch from a clever designer Deanne.

I am really pleased with how the layout of turned out. To me its perfect! The words are very special to me & were read out in church when my mum died. My mum loved gardening & flowers & has some very lovely roses growing in her garden. One of my favourites is called Silver Wedding which was an anniversary present to her a long time a go. She would have been married 49 years this summer. She is missed very, very much every single day. I decided to hand write the poem even tho I don't really like my hand writting because I am going to re-size it & print it out so that I can use it as a grave card today. The patterned papers are from Paper Mania. Thanks for looking. Gez.xx


  1. what a lovely lo gez,and such a lovely poem.

  2. Awe Gez it must be such a difficult time for you,but you have these wonderful memories and to put those in a scrapbook is a way to keep them alive! The poem is lovely as is the LO hugs xx jo xx

  3. That's a beautiful LO Gez and the words are so lovely. Thinking of you today xxx

  4. Those words are so beautiful and a very fitting tribute to your dear Mum my lovely. You have lovely handwriting and its made the page such a personal one for you all. I will be thinking of you today and hope that all your memories are happy ones of the joy you shared together. Hugs XXX

  5. Lovely LO, Gez. I think using your handwriting makes it much more personal and special and the photo of Tom with the rose is perfect. Thinking of you - I think Kathy's advice on the forum is perfect (although easier said than done, I'm sure) {{{hugs}}}.

  6. Oh my lord Gez, this is so heart warming and filled with such tenderness. Love the little photo of Tom holding the roses so gently, almost in a way as if to say to you "For you too Mummy as well as Nanny/a". I know this is hard, have been going through similar this week too. Hugs and kisses to you my lovely. XX

  7. Gez that is a wonderful layout and the poem is very touching too.

    Lots of love Tracey x
