Fake it

...til you make it. That's what I've been repeating to myself these past few weeks.

I'm sorry I've been so absent here. We had a personal tragedy happen a few weeks ago. I lived through every pet parents worst nightmare. At the age of 2.5 and with little to no warning Mac got very very sick. We were at various vets and animal hospitals for a few days and then we decided it was time to let her go. I'm still shocked by it all. I'm still crying every day. I'm crying as I type this. Because she was my little girl and we loved each other very much.

There's a 6.8 lb hole in this apartment. Even though she wasn't very big, she's left a very huge hole in our hearts.

So I'm going through the motions and trying to make the most of the holiday season. But I'm still very sad. Please excuse my absence here. I promise to start posting again when my heart is a bit more healed.

cheers & besos,

I had so much fun playing with the November Scrapbook Circle kit. It definitely has a Christmas vibe to it, but I made a few pages this month that didn't really have anything to do with Christmas. This page is all about the time I met a penguin. 
I really wasn't intending to scrap about this experience. But after seeing the great penguin die cut in the Pinkfresh Studio die cut pack, I thought this would be the perfect story to share this month!
For the page itself, I channeled my inner Jennifer Larson. Using an enlarged black and white photo with journaling strips on top is definitely something I've picked up from her.
I love that scrapbooking helps me remember these random but fun moments. I'd nearly forgotten I'd met this penguin until I saw that die cut. I love it when good products spark memories too!

cheers & besos,
