This was a great challenge by most favorite place for sketches, Beckie Fleck and her Page Maps Blog. Her motivation behind this LO challenge was October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we were supposed to scrap something meaningful to us like breast cancer awareness is meaningful to her ( her mom is an 8-year survivor of breast cancer because of early detection). That's awesome! I lost my grandmother to cancer ( Hodgkins Lymphoma) when I was a senior in high school. She died two weeks after I graduated. I remember that being her goal was to see at least one of her grandchildren graduate. She made to it to my graduation I am ever so thankful that she did! My heart goes out to all kinds of cancer patients and their families. Hopefully someday, a cure can be found! On to happier things, what is meaningful to me? Well, it is very simple-- holidays with my kids. I used to have to work every holiday when I was a restaurant/banquet manager for the Nittany Lion Inn, in State College, PA. Now that I am a stay-at-home mom, I don't miss them! So, here's the sketch and here's my take on it! Thanks for looking!
Journaling reads: " The holidays are sooo precious to me. As a mom who use to work every holiday, I never have to miss these smiling faces on Christmas morning again!"
