Oh, what a difference a day makes!!

Two months ago my mom was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. She had been sick for a couple months, but we were not able to figure out what was wrong with her. The diagnosis came as a huge shock and left us all feeling very overwhelmed and afraid!

I left to go to Utah just a couple days after she was diagnosed, and I was there for a month. It was a whirlwind trip and I took over 1,000 pictures. I think part of my therapy has been working through and processing my pictures and writing ALL of my journaling. I wanted to remember everything. I needed to process my feelings, my fears, the hard times, the good times and everything in between.  I am so grateful for scrapbooking and for what it has done for me personally and for my own story telling. I love that I have found a way to tell my story. It's who I am and what I want to remember.

I wanted it all to "go" together. I used a kit called "She's a Fighter" by Kristin Cronin-Barrow from Sweet Shoppe Designs for most of the pages. {I added a few other elements from my stash}.

All of the templates are from Yin Designs, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her templates!!

I can't wait to print it!!
