The 2nd of September is my Tata's (grandfather's) birthday.  He would have been 101 years old.  Our Lord gave him 100 years on this Earth and he left us in March of this year. 

He he married my Nana (grandmother)when I was about 7 or 8 years old and made her so happy.  They had many adventures together and we got hear all about them when they came home from one of their many trips.

It's amazing to me that she found her soul mate later in life, it goes to show that every person has the one person that they were meant to be with.  I am so grateful that she found him and that they had many years of happiness together.  We were blessed to have him in our family and in our lives and even more blessed that he loved us like we were his grandchildren.  For this reason and because of the happiness he gave to my Nana I just wanted to say happy birthday to you Tata and that we think of you often.

This is a Lay out I did quite a while ago (the design isn't mine it came from a sketch and I don't remember the website to give credit) but I thought a picture would be appropriate to share with people of the my Tata.

Lucky Me...

One of my favorite scrappy hang outs Simply Obsessed had a birthday blog hop and I followed the hop and let me say there is so much talent over there! I got lots of awesome inspiration.  The best part of just hopping from blog to blog looking at a bunch of great projects was that I won a prize for doing it! It was a happy surprise for me to this prize.  Here's what I won, the July kit:

I just started working with the kit and let me tell you the picture does not do the papers justice.  It was so fun doing my first LO with this kit and to the design for the LO is not my own I got it from the August Sketch challenge over at Simply Obsessed blog.  Here's my first LO with kit and I will share more once I finish them.
