February Color Challenge-pink, orange and lime green
Book of Me February 2013-some one that is/has been an inspiration to your life
I did this layout for my grandma that I lost just over 3 years ago. She inspired me to be a better mother and love them for who they are and not who I want them to be. I did the pictures of roses for many reasons to represent her, one her favorite flower was roses, favorite color was purple. A little story, Christmas of 2010, just a year after her passing, I had my baby sister visit me and the kids. We had just got back from getting something to eat. I stopped before entering my house, because I smelled the scent of roses (I have rose bushes in my front yard). So I went to see if I had any flowers that were in bloom ( I live in Texas, can have flowers all year). Well there was no open flowers, not even a bud of one coming on any of my bushes. My sister looked at me like what was I looking for. So I asked her "do you smell that?" With out another thought or word we both said "Grandma". I believe with all my heart, I smelled flowers that day because of my grandma, for her to remind me that no matter how much I miss her, no matter how much I hurt, she never truly left me.
