Peachy Keen's Let's Face It Friday! Challenge #2

Well, let me tell you a little something.... This has been by far the hardest card I have had to make. Not because it was difficult to make, but because I chose to do it honoring my grandpa.

He passed away about 5 years ago and it's still a very sensitive subject to talk about in my family. I don't know if i am the only one feeling weird about this but.... we have never had any deaths in our families and I thank God for that. Now, I know that we all have to go someday, but that's something that my family, well.... we don't talk about it! 

So, can you imagine how it was when my grandpa died? OMG it was and it still feels like it's the end of the world!! 

Making this card has helped a lot. Like I said, we don't talk a lot about "mi abuelito".... i'm thinking I will have to MAKE my family come over and take a look :)

Why did I use cameras?? Well, mi abuelito was a professional photographer. He actually took this picture himself!!! This is one of my favorites!!! Wasn't he handsome? :)

I just noticed I forgot to put glitter where the flash of the cameras! Oh well, I'll do that later. 

Also, I made this card 5 x 7.
I will give the card to my mom and that way she can frame it!

I used:
BoBunny Paper
CAC Cart

Thank you for taking a look!

Don't forget about Gaby Abby Challenges!! Link is on the top!!

Abby this is amazing. My tata recently passed away and this is a great way to remember. I think I may make my mamma something like this too.
