Cherish Memories

this is a layout I finished last month. it's supposed to be for the mla challenge but i wasn't able to finish it on time.

i hand-cut the flowers and doodled on some lines to add texture. hidden journalling was placed at the back of the photo.

journal reads: over the past two years, a lot of things have changed in my life. i never realized how easy it is to lose the people we care for so much, in an instant. there i was thinking and planning for our future, a future i wanted to build for my daughter. the next instant, i was laying to rest the very same person i was mapping my future for.

ever since i lost raya, i have then realized that i have no control over things. my life can change in any given time without warning.

now, i can only look back to the moments i carried her in me and those 10 days she's been with us. i have realized that it is better that i have at least shared those short moments with her than nothing at all. my loss has taught me a very valuable life lesson, that i should cherish every moment of life no matter where it takes me. it is through these memories that i can say i have lived my life.

materials used: bazzill cs; wrmk patterned papers; fibers: basic grey & carolina's; mm eyelets; dmc floss; hinges; k&co (memories); sizzlits (cherish)
