CSI #24 Challenge

I am very heavy handed in my scrapbooking and cannot seem to find that soft touch which photos like this deserve. This is a photo of my husband and I looking lovingly at one of our grandsons at one of our sons weddings. It gets a little confusing but we have two sons married to sisters, they have also built houses next door to each other and the younger son works with the girls dad!
Our eldest son and his wife orchestrated the relationship between their siblings and they were ecstatic when asked to be Best Man and Maid of Honour for the wedding. Sadly my eldest son was killed in an accident before he could carry out his treasured role. He loved to dress up and look smart but had a quirky way of wearing converse boots with his suits, he had such a lovely fun character that he could pull it off with ease!
His little boy, pictured, was Ring Bearer and proxy Best Man for his Dad. He wore a little black vest, pants and tie, a white shirt with his Dad's cuff links and a tiny pair of converse boots with the rings tied to the laces. We all realised the significance of the boots and there was not a dry eye in the chapel.
I beleive in miracles and this little boy, born 6 months after my sons death is our little miracle; a tiny part of our son left to help us through the darker days and bring such light into our lives.
Thank you for looking and for any comments you may leave, best wishes



  1. Oh Susan, just reading this has brought tears to my eyes... Thank you for sharing about your cherished son and his little boy.. this layout is soft and beautiful and the flowers are really lovely... I hope you are having a good day...

  2. It was absolute love at first sight when I saw your page over at CSI! so beautiful and soft with the tissue background and the photo is precious beyond words. I did get mushy reading your post but also thought how very loved this little guy's dad is, never forgotten always remembered. You DO know how to scrap with a soft hand, this page is proof of that! I love its gorgeous cluster, the chippie hearts, the bling swirls, the whole feel of it! Beautiful beautiful page Susan! xoxo

  3. Susan what an absolute treasure to have this little person to love and to remember your son. I'm sure when your daughter in law inherits your sons album she will treasure it and in turn pass it to his son. Thoughts are with you.
