scrapjacked week 2 - Rick

This is my lift for Scrapjacked Week 2 - Meghan Dymock.

Rick is a family friend who passed away last week. I had taken pictures of him this summer when he visited Arkansas (one of his last wishes was to come see my family and spend time in Arkansas again). It was a hard journey from Tuscon, Arizona being sick and on oxygen, but he was determined! I had only met him twice in my life, but I have known him forever and he had a major impact on my entire family.
I enjoyed the process of this LO it was great therapy! I used a piece of black chipboard from my RV July kit and layered some torn papers and stamping on the entire background. The "FUN" transparent letters are my own creation and Creative Imagination stamps and some American Craft and MAMBI rubons on I had. I also had some Making Memories metal embellies that I used for the arrow. Oh, the button! - I was playing with a Sharpie and some glitter and glue. Added it at the end!
Journaling reads: Amazing how you barely know someone yet they make such a huge impact in your life. I think I met Rick in person only 2 or 3 times but I have always "known" him. Thankful to get to see him this summer. Even though he didn't feel well, he still was full of funny stories! He will forever be our Nintendo Wii coach!

Thanks for the nice words!
Cheryl, I live in northcentral Arkansas in a small town, Ash Flat. (north of Batesville). Fayetteville is such a cool town. I have to go over there occasionally for meetings and such and I love all the great restaurants on Dixon.
