A Special Kind Of Love - Scrap Africa Challenge 8
It is time for a new challenge over at Scrap Africa and this time we were to use the poster below as inspiration for our projects. You can use the phrase in your project or you can make a mini-album to tell your story. I chose this beautiful photo of Josie and Beauty. Beauty was Josie's first love, and the pony who taught Josie to ride. When Josie and her parents lived in the Middle East Josie took every opportunity during the summers to visit Beauty in Norway. She also took Beauty on her first ever riding camp when she was only 6 yrs old. Beauty belonged to Penelope Ponyfarm, the place where her Mom grew up, and where she too learnt to ride and care for horses. On days when Josie struggled with her confidence Beauty was there to help her along and if the lesson didn't go too well, there was always cuddles and special moments to compensate for that and so a very special bond formed between the two of them. After Beauty retired Josie still went to visit her and just spent quiet moments cuddling and grooming her. Sadly Beauty passed away in 2011 due to a severe bout of colic at the ripe old age of 25. She was a legend to all the kids at Penelope Farm. Josie and Beauty's story is written on a tag which I tucked away. Combined with this challenge I also made this layout for a DT project at Flourish With A Bling. I used pieces of the beautiful FWAB Bella Rhinestone Flourishes Wine and saving the rest of it for another project.:)
And here is the "inspiration poster".
That's all for now :) Thanks for looking and have a great day!!xx
