Two weeks ago we had a memorial at school for Matthew who sadly lost his battle with cancer.  Leading up to the memorial his Mum & Dad had left a scrapbook in the reception for memories of Matthew that any of the staff or pupils may have.
They left stickers for people to fill in and place in the book.  As it was filling up I thought it looked a bit bare and wanted to make it more colourful for when his family read it later.

Being scrapbook minded (as I can be on occasion), I blew the dust of my Making Memories Star punch and punched as many stars as I could out of all the odd scraps of patterned paper I could find.  I then took them to work and glued them into the scrapbook.

Yesterday Matthew's Dad came into school and asked if we knew where you could buy some of the stars.  I told him I had punched them out and he asked if I would mind doing some more for the rest of the book that was filled in by others at the memorial.  Of course I said it wouldn't be a problem and he asked if I could do twenty.

I got a bit carried away last night and ended up with fifty.  If I can help Matthew's lovely family in any way it will be my pleasure.

  1. Your stars reminded me of this quote, not sure who to give credit to ...


    Perhaps they are not stars, but a rather openings,
    In Heaven where the love of our lost one pours through
    And shines down upon us to let us know they are happy

    2. That's beautiful Mary Lou. I looked it up and it's an Eskimo saying which I thought was lovely. Thank you for sharing it. I've written it out for Matthews family

  2. I'm so glad you added a wee bit of "umpf" to the scrapbook. It will bring his parents and family a great deal of comfort, I am sure.

  3. It's the small actions that make such a difference. Those stars will make that difference.
