LMCB - Remembrance Day

Good morning everyone...  
Lasting memories has another great challenge for you all this week- the challenge is in honour of Remembrance Day - "To remember someone special"    My special person is my Aunt Marjie who just last month passed away of lung cancer.  Her daughter turned nineteen the day after her death.  My aunt was always very special to me even though she wasn't a blood aunt - she was one of my mom's closest friends and she took me in after my mom passed away.  I was eighteen when that happened thus making it hit even closer to home with her daughter   

Anyhow.... I don't  want to depress anyone... this is a happy memory of her.  One of our traditions is to get together every Christmas eve to celebrate.  These pictures were taken last year.  She was one very special lady to me and she will always be remembered.
 For this LO I was playing around with papers and ink.  You will see some iridescent flowers that I embossed with the CTMH Card Word Puzzle flower. Then used some red ink to rub over it... not quiet sure how I feel about it... I am thinking now that I should have done some more stamps and embossing on it then it would be better -  
 Added some ribbon and gold pen to the flower stamps to make embellishments 
I used CTMH pemberley paper packet and cut out some of the hexagons 
Well I hope that you are taking some time to do some crafting this week.  Ohhh and my blog candy... totally forgot  - Soooo the winner of my blog candy is Karen!!!!  I was so happy to see that I had my blog badge on your blog - I am sure Sonia the designer is quiet happy as well - I think I have your addy already but I will let you know if you need to send it to me again 

Hope to see you all join us for this challenge
I was also inspired to create this LO because of the following challenges:
card crafts- we remember
delicious doodles- remembering 
critter sketch- remembrance
practical scrappers- two or more stamps
