Happy Birthday Jody 2020 July Monthly Challenge #4 Mood Board

Summer always means my fairy garden coming to life again. I haven’t scrapped much, but tomorrow is Jody’s birthday so I wanted to make a layout for her.
Journaling reads:
In the months following Jody’s death I was sorely missing her and grounded with a fractured foot. When searching for a layout quote about "fairies and gardens" I discovered the concept of fairy gardens so I researched and decided to make my own. I cleared the hill coming up my front steps and added a few little houses, finding it soothing working in the ground, planting flowers and creating mystical little scenes. I felt close to Jody there, knowing she’d be enchanted watching my fairy garden grow. Darren agreed and even made his own garden in Australia so the fairies could travel back and forth and miss winters. We’ve sent each other fairies and pieces and I’ve gotten many more as birthday and Christmas gifts so every year my fairy garden has grown. It feels magical and I feel close to Jody working tending it; somehow she feels a part of it. Happy Birthday, my friend. I miss you… xo”
For this layout I used:
BMU SS Background Blenders 5
GWH SS Grunge Effect Borders
OAWA Hunting Mushrooms Value Pack
and my own photos

I love your fairy garden, and I hadn't known they existed until you told me about them a while ago.  I'd like to make my own someday.  I love your journaling.  💕

Love your fairy garden and page. The fairies will come to visit for sure. And will probably stay for awhile, it is so lovely. Good to have you back.

Reading your journaling through tears, it just goes to show that SG is about so much more than scrapping. It's about true and timeless friendship. Your layout portrays that so beautifully. Hugs to you my friend.
