Here is the first page I have made of my mom since she has passed away in December. I used the beautiful Time Flies kit with bits and pieces from previous kits. This page will be submitted in the Book of Me Challenge for Jan 2011 at SB.com. Her death had the greatest impact of my year for 2010. I wanted to make a page that would hold some journaling of my heartache. So that envelope holds : "The Ironies of Your Death" How angry I was at God for 'taking you away from me' when you were diagnosed with cancer. Then at the end I pleaded with him to take you away, so you wouldn't have to suffer anymore. It feels like I hardly got to have you in my life, that you were taken too soon. But I was fortunate to have you in my life, as long as I did. I miss you so much and I know I will never see you again. But then, when my journey is over here, we will be together again. This picture of my mom was taken in 1957.
Here is the envelope that holds my heartache. I inked and stamped it with script. I used some cut outs from the Lost and Found Collection to decorate it as well.
