Where Flowers Bloom



Spring can really help cure all...

My Mother was officially diagnosed with Altzheimer's about 2003 but she had been suffering with the beginning of the disease for a period of time before that. For the past year, her condition has steadily worsened, and now we have been told her time is near. As with everything in my life, digi-scrapping is my therapy...my way of maintaining a hold onto sanity. Here is a page on my feelings of today. Journaling reads,



"Mother's last days-

her time is drawing near

and I am doing my best.

I said my good-byes to

my Mother months ago

and I do not need to

bear witness to the death

of the old woman in the

nursing home. Rather, I

will remember her final days

as those when I was staying

with her, when we took walks

and enjoyed the flowers, when

we laughed, and when we cried,

together...as friends"

A scraplift of Love My Babies by Tracy at ScrapArtist.



I used Those Irish Eyes by BooLand Designs for background and I made my ribbons from those papers. I used the stitching from the top of the belt from this kit to create my stitching binding edge.

Additional Credits:

-papers and elements from Lorenza Bella's Luck of the Irish from Sophia Sarducci. The flowers are from Pulling Weeds and Grandmothers Garden by Jen Ulasiewicz Designs. The button and button stitch is from the Bunches of Buttons freebie from Weeds and Wildflower; Syrin's Silver Shimmer from Catscrap; Madame Mim's Moving freebie from

Catscrap and Stitching by Tracy Blankenship.

What a beautiful story. I love the use of the recipe card type journaling box. The photos are so colorful. The paper and elements blend so well with this layout.

Ah, wow.. you've brought tears to my eyes. My mother died of the same disease in 2002, and I am the same way, I want to remember her in her garden. You've created a masterpiece of love... thanks so much for sharing this touching layout...
