I decided today i was going to scrap something for someone who means the world to me and this would have alot of meaning to her... My daughter Lindsay.
She dated Jason for over 4 years, all through high school and then graduation. She started noticing a change in him that wasn't a good one and I think when she was taking classes at IU he fell into the wrong crowd. He started doing drugs and she tried to help him get off them but she realized she wasn't going to be able to do that and decided they needed to break up. My daughter was always the perfect child to me. She never got in any trouble in school, always checked in with me when she went somewhere and we spent alot of time together. She never ever disappointed me and her decision to walk away from a relationship with someone who she cared so much about showed how mature beyond her years she was.
She stayed in contact with him alot and I know they both still loved each other very much. I remember the day like it was yesterday...she worked for me at my business and she got a phone call from her friend Cassie who was also Jason's sister. He had died. My daughter was so disbelieving of this news and even though it has been years I am crying as I write this. I cannot forgive myself because I chose for my own selfish reasons not to go to his funeral. I was thinking about how it was going to make me feel. I knew that I would not be able to take my daughter breaking down. I am weak when it comes to her and anything that hurts her.
Although she was in another relationship she was very distraught. To this day I know she has never forgotten about him. So this is just a little something I can do for her. I know the colors in the picture don't really go with what I used on this layout but it was all behind the meaning I was going for. This paper with all the sayings on it is from Quick Quotes and I felt all the sayings really went with what I feel and she feels is that life is too short. I used grays for two reasons. It seems to be the color my daughter is drawn too. We go shopping I find all kinds of colorful things that she would look beautiful wearing and she picks something gray. Also that the gray and black symbolizes her mourning. That is why I chose this title. I used My Creative Time for Me set "Encouraging Quotes" which was so fitting for this layout. I'm not much on layouts because I just don't seem to be able to do them and make them look good!!
Here is some pics of them on Prom which is what I used on the layout as well was a prom photo.
