1 week ago I lost my aunt. She was such a dear, sweet lady and lived until she was 97. I was thinking of doing a page about her so I was wondering if there are any kits about losing a loved one. I wouldn't normally think of doing this, but she was very special to me. We lived upstairs from her the whole time I was growing up so I basically saw her on a daily basis.
Thanks for any help.

Certainly not a weird question- I'm not sure of any specific loss of a loved one kit- but perhaps find something that has her favorite colors? Or incorporate pieces from a kit that she enjoyed doing during her life (flowers? cooking? crafting? reading?) .

I am sorry for your loss. :( I think making a page is a brilliant idea to honor a memory of someone so very close to you like that. :) <3 <3

I don't know of any specific kits in the store about loss, but I have a couple that might work for you, like the "i miss you" and "forget me not" themes:

I'm sorry for your loss, I hope scrapping helps you get through it *hugs*

Sorry to hear about your loss Nikkie! :( That's hard - and I think its a great idea to celebrate her life and your relationship with her in a page - its a great memory & piece of history to share with future generations....

Good suggestions Char!

The one kit I thought of is called "Life ain't always beautiful" by Connie Prince

This is one I had thought of initially as well.

I am saddened to hear of your loss. Personally- I am not one to scrap/post sad or memorial style pages. My advice though [cuz I always have an opinion] is to choose the photo or perhaps several- then look thru your or the store here.
The right kit (s) will speak to you. Consider combining colors as well as word art and quotes.
It does not need to be a search of "memorial" or any such words or theme.
All the best.

I'm sorry for your loss. And I'm with Michi: the kit theme isn't as important as your photos and the memories you wish to memorialize. I found a few in the shop when I searched "Family" that you might like. Hopefully you find something (or you already have something) that will work.
