Inspiration Elevator - Grandad

 Here is my page base on the challenge over at the Inspiration Elevator this month - there is loads of inspiration on the blog hop and you can catch us on Facebook  and share your creations there; we'd love to see how we have inspired you!

This month we are thrilled to welcome back as a guest designer with our team, the artistic and genteel, Scarlett Salomone. Her creative works are as lovely as she is!

This month's challenge is issued by the talented Wendi Robinson. Her first time to issue a challenge for IE and it's a great one! Here is her challenge in her own words:

LOSS... One thing we as scrapbookers do is post about lots of happy things, wonderful moments, things that make us smile, and things we want to remember. Too many times we avoid scrapping the not so memorable, or sad times. Most of us have experienced a loss of some kind, whether is be a loved one- sometimes it's expected, sometimes the loss comes too soon and unexpected. Other times we lose a pet, a job, feel like we've failed at a situation, or loss of a friendship. This time, let's scrap those harder moments that come into our lives. Scrap about a LOSS of some kind.

For my page I scrapped a photo of my Grandad - this is probably from the 1940s when he was a young man.  I remember him for Saturday mornings where he taught us how to watercolour, made the largest omelettes, and evenings when he looked after us and we had massive card games and watched the Waltons, in all that he was also a devout Christian and Sunday School teacher which he loved - so even though it is a loss to not have him about anymore he has had a massive impact on all of my family and our lives.
