Your Strength

As you probably already know, my Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer early last year. She has had a pretty rough time with treatment and subsequent side effects. But through it all, and even now, she still manages to smile. This is a 'just because' layout about that:
I've used a couple of different mist for the background. I'm loving the combination of yellow, teal and black at the moment. I've used up some old scraps of Fancy Pants papers and die-cuts on this one. Here is a close up of my journalling:

And a close up of my rolled rose:

Thanks so much for stopping by...
