Scrapping the Secret

I signed up for Anita's online workshop Scrapbooking the Secret, and tonight I got round to completing a LO. We had to scrap something in our life that we are grateful for. An obvious choice for me would have been the two wonderful boys I never thought I'd have... but instead I chose to scrap about Rob and the support he gave me when things got pretty tough.
Journalling reads;

After my second miscarriage I had what can only be described as a mini breakdown. Tears and grieving were to be expected but I couldn't shake the pain and heartache I felt. You were there everytime I needed to cry, everytime I got angry at the unfairness of it all, and everytime another pregnancy was announced. My erratic emotions and behaviour caused fractures in
friendships that may never heal, yet your love remained strong. I am so grateful you are the person you are... a lesser man would have walked. I love you very much.
We also had to use something out of our stash that we had been saving for 'that special LO'. So I used the lace edging and the lush paper from Rouge de Gaurance, which I have been coveting for far too long...
A very theraputic LO... I was in tears by the time I had finished it... so thanks to Anita for the prompt. Looking forward to the next part of the challenge.

Followed link her from UKS..

What tearjerking journalling.. got me on the verge here! Think it's good to get it all out though..I find getting it on paper gets it out of my head sometimes...

But hugs hun.. I can totally sympathise with the anger and frustration as everyone seems to be popping babies out left right and centre here.. and I've got baby fever real bad...
