Saudade is a word in Portuguese that is used to describe what we feel when we miss someone.
The translation goes something like this: My grandfather was the love of my life! Truly the person for whom I had the greatest affection. I was the first grandchild, I could feel I also had a special place in his heart. When he got sick and this crazy teenager came to spend the nights with him at the hospital, we truly bonded. I was that little girl again, but this time I was the one caring for him. He taught me to cherish life, to enjoy the moments, the simple things. I feel so blessed to have shared my life with him, and still I miss him so much it hurts. But I know he is watching over me and rejoicing on my happiness and that one day... one day I will see him again.
Journaling: Meu avô era o amor da minha vida! A pessoa por quem eu mais sentia carinho. Eu fui a primeira neta, e sentia que eu também tinha um lugarzinho especial no coração dele. Quando ele ficou doente e eu adolescente doida passava as noites com ele no hospital, parecia que tínhamos voltado aquele relacionamento sincero de quando eu era pequenininha. Mas dessa vez, quem estava cuidando era eu. Ele me ensinou a amar a vida, a curtir cada momento, as coisas simples do dia-a-dia. Eu me sinto abençoada por ter dividido minha vida com ele, mas mesmo assim a saudade dói. Mas eu sei que ele está me vendo lá do céu, e cuidando de mim, e feliz de ver a minha família, os bisnetos, e que um dia... um dia vamos todos nos reunir.

I am happy with my scrapping lately, not the pages, the hobby :)
My scrapping life started with Shabby Princess, the second designer I ever bought anything from was Shabby Miss Jenn and then it was Gina Cabrera. You know how hard it is to buy your first kits, you are not sure what you are getting you are not sure what to do with it. With goodies from these ladies I never regreted a single purchase. Thinking back it would have been better if I was disappointed so I would spend soo much LOL!
Anyway, all of this just to let you know I am guest CT for Shabby Miss Jenn this month :) wooooooooohooot :)
Here is some eye candy I already did with some new goodies:Click on layouts for credits :)
