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"

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

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.
