Choose Life – March OUAS challenge

Hello everyone!

Today I will show you my take on the OUAS March challenge. This time apart form the beautiful sketch by the talented Nadia Cannizzo, the theme was a quote “You only live once but if you do it right, once is enough”. I dont really know why, it is one of those moments where your heart takes over and emotions burst… I immediately thought of my best friend who lost the battle with depression about eight years ago and is now an angel… An angel up in the sky who takes care of my baby girl… All those years I never found the courage to scrap a photo of her but now was the time… No matter what I did, it wasn't enough… I am sorry sweetie, I miss you so much!!!

My page was inspired by the great tutorial of Georgia Heald from Pop and Colors II. I used the Maja Designs Sofiero Collection and some Prima blooms and embellishments. Here is my page

My journaling is on the back. I am so sorry for the emotional post but some things cannot be forgotten or left behind…

Bye for now…

  7. Sometimes you just have to go with your heart and often times those are the layouts that come to have the most meaning. I am so sorry that you lost your friend and I just want you to know it was not because of something that you did or did not do. Sometimes things like this just happen. You have created an amazing and beautiful layout to celebrate her life. A good way to get your thoughts and feelings down onto paper and it can be very therapeutic. I am sure she is looking down on your and is so happy to know that you have celebrated her life this way. Big hugs.
    Thanks for playing along with us at OUAS this month. :) Please load your layout onto our OUAS FB page for another chance to win.

  8. I am soooo glad that you could finally scrap about your friend. Depression is simply awful, & the powerlessness we feel because we cannot FIX the problem...well, you know what I mean...this page is GORGEOUS..the colours, the little key, the title. Magnificent work. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at OUAS:):):)
