Double layout - "Legacy"

Have you ever scrapbooked a funeral layout? Me niether, until now. If scrapping is truly about keeping our memories alive for future generations, than why not scrap the sad memories as well?

My husband's father passed away this summer and we miss him so much! He left quite a legacy of faith in God, treasuring family, and a love of music. I hope this layout does justice to this great man of God!

 Mark's Dad was a veteran so the star embellishments seemed perfect for the layout in addition to the blue ribbon placed vertically between two brads. There is no patterned paper on this layout. That is rare for me, but sometimes it just feels right without it.

All of Mark's siblings sang in the wedding, and the grandkids were all involved musically as well. My sons, Jacob and Joel, sang and played guitar, and his other two grandsons played trumpet, piano, sang, and played drums. The family is very gifted musically and the love of music was definitely passed down from Mark's Dad. 

Hope this post will remind you to scrap the sad times as well as the great moments in your life. He will be missed here on earth, but we can't wait to se him again in heaven!!
