That day changed everything

I saw the new challenge over at Once upon a sketch last night with the journaling prompt "An event that changed my life..." my thoughts went flying, I could have done the easy way, my children’s births or maybe the day I met the love of my life or better yet the day we got married. All of those things brought huge changes in my life and they are all happy memories but I’ve learned that we also have to scrap the bad ones too so this page is all about therapy!
The event I picked changed the lives all our family and friends…

It took one phone call to altered my world…and things will never be the same again.

I used one of the last picture’s that were ever taken of my 13 year old daughter Stephanie before she past away, I did a whole lot of journaling …you can find some of it behind the picture…My journaling is about the phone call and my panic I still have every time the phone rings, also about being away when it happened (she was with her dad while we were away), about the accident its self… on the back of the layout attached the rest of the journaling and a letter to my Stephanie.
to be honest I think I spent more time on the journaling then I did the layout..but I think it was very therapeutic....





 I wanted to thank all the ladies at OUAS because you make me really think about the journaling!

thanks for coming to take a peek!

  3. Just so beautiful.I guess it would have been truly emotional doing this layout . Your daughter had a rather mischievous grin on her face,and she looked happy, that would surely bring a smile to your heart and a tear to the eye..xo

  5. Man, you are very brave to scrap this...but you're right, I guess there is a certain amount of therapy being able to scrap about your DD...& she DOES have a sparkle in her eye:):) Thank you so much for sharing this with us....& it is a great page....you've scrapped it so the focus is smack on the photo......& I do love the colours you've chosen [like i said on FB!]....thanks for sharing this month with us at OUAS:):):)

  6. Buffy this is a beautiful and a heart wrenching layout and while I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like to lose a child I do know how liberating it is to scrap painful memories. Our lives are not made up of only happy moments and I think it takes some extreme bravery to scrap the good, the bad and the ugly moments. I am so grateful to have been privy to these painful moments of yours and that you feel safe enough to share them with us here. A wonderful tribute to this engaging young daughter of yours. Thank you for playing along with us at OUAS this month.

  10. I had to skip this entry and come back later, for it is so near to my heart, I lost my brother and created my page about him for this challenge! Even now after 23 years, I still dread the sound of a phone ringing...Saying sorry to you for your lost seems so small and insignificance, but please take this hug that I am sending you...{ } You created a gorgeous page for Stephanie..may her memories be with you for ever more...

  11. Oh... so sad....sitting here crying right now... I almost lost my daughter 3 years ago ( thats what my page is about this month over at OUAS). I know what pain it caused me... and I can´t even imagine how it would have been to loose her. So very sorry for your loss. Hugs <3 Thanks for sharing your story with with us over at Once Upon A Sketch.
