One Sweet Day

Jenn says KAYA!

I finished this layout February 12, but as I was supposed to upload it here, I realized that I overlooked one key rule in this month's challenge. The layout was supposed to be about love, and unfortunately, my layout wasn't about it. This layout is definitely disqualified, but I will still share it - just to say I am back to scrapbooking. =)

One Sweet Day

Journaling:
"...although the sun will never shine the same, I'll always look for a brighter day..."

I could say that I handled my dad's death fine, but after a few months, I could also say that I had a hard time coping with the loss after reality has sunk on me. So on this day, along with the sun setting, I am letting go of all the negative feelings brought about by dad's death. Time to move forward and embrace the sweet fact that life is indeed beautiful.

Materials Used:
The last time I created a scrapbook layout was June of 2008, so I already forgot the labels of the materials. Sorry.

I used the song "One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men. I thought I could still do a layout before the deadline, but I attended the Singles for Christ International Conference in Cebu City then made a side trip to Tanjay and Dumaguete cities in Negros Oriental, I was out from Feb 18 until yesterday. I am actually going to hit the road again later tonight to attend the Panagbenga Festival in Baguio City, then to La Union for my dad's death anniversary. Promise to make up next challenge.

To Craft Fairy, thanks for the challenge. I may not be able to do it correctly, but your challenge really made me go back to scrapbooking.

About Me:
A person with multiple personalities who's very much into blogging, traveling, photography, and eating. Trying to come back into scrapbooking and is hoping to create more layouts based on the pictures she took. Check her blogs at: Jenn Was Here and An Autobiography in the Works.

Hello Jenn, I like the asterisks that you stitched. They added character to the circles. The LO can still be about LOVE. To me it looks like you are expressing your love to mother nature! Cheers!
