Hi everyone. It's August 7th and time for a new challenge at Challenge YOUrself!
August's challenge is to create a page about tough times in your life:
I was inspired to create my layout about the 2 hardest things in my life that I lived through - first, the death of my sister, Cathy, and second and more recently, the death of my mom. Cathy battled ovarian cancer for many years and passed away at the age of 52 and my mom had dementia and passed away at the age of 89.
Here is the photo that I used that was taken on Mother's Day of this year:
Mother's Day always reminds me of my sister's and mom's love, but sometimes I feel sad as well. Here, our dog, Abbey, gave me a great big kiss and helped me to feel much happier. Dogs really are our best friends, aren't they? We always had a dog and that is one of the fond memories I have of my childhood!!!
I am also linking my project to Art Journal Journey, Monthly.
This month's theme is When We Were Young and is hosted by the talented Chris from Pearshapedcrafting.
Thank you, Chris and
AJJ for having this wonderful challenge!
And thank YOU for stopping by my blog today. I hope you have an awesome August!
