Another month another fabulous challenge over at More Than Words!! The challenge this month is a sketch and the word smile. This is my version.
You've met this little sweetie before. Her name is Keaton and she fought and won her battle with cancer! She has every reason to smile don't you think?
Kiki developed cancer at the tender age of two and has suffered more than any human should have to in her battle with it. I have been documenting her journey through it's various stages by scrapbooking. This layout will also be included in the albums.
I used Blue Fern papers for this layout. Just a few close-ups.
I used a Prima stencil on the background and some mists in gold and pinks.
The title journey is self-explanatory. What this little girl endured in the fight for her life is unimaginable!Yet she did and she won. She is such a trooper!
I added some seashells to the layout as it was taken on the beach and it felt right! I also used some Blue Fern Chipboard on this piece.
More flowers from Prima!
