A Tribute to a wonderful lady and Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge 24

When I started this blog I said I would never post anything personal, but since I have been absent I need to thank Kim for understanding! Just as I accepted my position to her design team someone very special to me got sick and I had just a short time to get to my home state to spend time with her. This would be my wonderful Grandmother. I still can not even put into words how special she was and I still can not believe she is gone. As someone wrote to me this week, the world is dimmer without her in it and I could not have said it better. I got my love of the beach  from her and I have to share this bathing beauty picture with you! Thank you for letting me share a little something personal and explain my absence during this difficult time. 

Now onto this week's challenge at Off the Wall Craftiness.  Here is the color palette that Kim came up with.

Here is my clean and simple card.

Kim has a great sponsor this week Clear and Simple Stamps, so be sure to play for your chance to win!

Many blessing and warm aloha!

What a great clean and simple card! You've achieved a wonderful balance of the colors. Your grandmother looked so beautiful in the picture, it sounds from your tribute to her that she had just as beautiful of a soul.
