2nd Easter Without Nan 2014 digi layout

I have tried not to dwell too much this Easter, but its really hard not to associate Easter with my Nan who passed away 12 months ago in February (at age 98). Easter was the holiday season that I did spend with her- taking her to the Club for a meal, or in later years to my Auntie & Uncle's who aren't for afternoon tea, which Nan really enjoyed (though the first one she was so certain they would lock her out from the home that she only stayed a couple of hours before insisting being driven back). Then there came a time when I couldn't drive Nan anywhere on my own. She'd try to open the door whilst I was driving along, and if I locked it, then when we stopped she'd near rip the door handle off because it wouldn't open! Later on it would be just flowers and chocolates in her room. She loved chocolate.

When I saw the Pixels and Paper challenge all I could think of was Nan - just because it was Easter themed. So I have created a page based on the beautiful warm colours (Autumn toned - which is quite neat because in Australia Easter is in Autumn) and done another 'Nan' page.

It's a cold, overcast day today, after days and days of sunshine. So this page warms me up a bit too.
