Freedom To Let Go

Hi ya, back again to show you another journal page which I did earlier in the year, this was during the time my Mother in Law was ill.  I have taken a workshop called LifeBook 2015 by Tam.  It is a year long workshop that is weekly all year round, she has loads of popular designers plus herself teaching us and wow I got this for Christmas (it cost £75) and the work your getting, the information, the creativity is out of this world.  I already know that I shall be doing it next year as it's amazing.  This was the first week, just a practise page!!!  I'm almost finished the other page from week one.  I became behind because of illness, then of course MIL became ill.  When I started this page I thought everything would be fine but then of course she became seriously ill and died late April.  It's only now that we are getting ourselves sorted, but still so much to do.
Anyway enough of feeling somber, it is only after you realise that life can be so fragile that you realise you need to grab onto your family but also grab onto happiness.
I would like to enter the following challenges -
Rhedd's Creative Spirit Challenge Blog - Mixed Media or Altered Art
Through The Craftroom Door - Anything Goes

We were taught the background but I have to admit I added
stencilling, stamping, circles, hearts, crackle.
The Tag has my goals for the year written underneath :-)

Right I shall be back tomorrow with ............... (another attempt at a sneak peak lol)

Brilliant at least this time it's not fuzzy lol, maybe I will get the hang of it someday.  Thank you so much for visiting.
Happy Art :-)
