Scrap That Poetry's Next Challenge

Here is my Design Team sample for Scrap That Poetry's next fortnightly challenge. It was a challenging poem by Edgar Allan Poe, but there were so many small elements to draw from as inspiration. Thank you to Vanilla for this gorgeous photo of her DD.
You can find the poem here.

I encourage you all to give it a go!
Have fun with this one ladies!

Revamping an Old Layout

The original .......

.... the revamp.

It was during the Little Scrapbook Retreat last year that I received the news on the Sunday morning that my Poppy had just passed away. Almost 12 months on, this has been playing on my mind.
When I originally scrapped this LO about 3 years ago, the word "POPPY" fell off (Heidi Swapp!!) and I wasn't really happy with the journaling.

It wasn't until SM called for grandparent LOs in their current issue (that I am published in!!), that I pulled this LO out knowing that I owed it to myself and my Poppy to fix it. So I added and changed some PPs and the flowers and modernised it. I said I would never touch my old LOs but I'm really pleased I did.

I submitted it and SM rejected it today - but that's OK, because that makes me even more determined to keep submitting.
RIP Poppy. I miss you every day.

Here is a LO I scrapped just for myself - not for a challenge - of one of my best friends Kath and I modelling for our local TS14+ store. I thought the Graphic45 Fashionista papers were perfect for this photo!

Luv Shelee :)
