And now to my project! This year has been quite a roller coaster ride for me. December of last year, I was diagnosed with Leukemia and this year has been an ongoing battle for me. I have been through chemotherapy treatments and many ups and downs that this disease causes but if there is one Thing I'm Thankful For is that I am ALIVE!!! I am very lucky to be alive and I am thankful every day of my life. I am also thankful to have had my family by my side through this difficult time and for that I am eternally thankful. for my project, I decided to make a 12x12 Digital Layout using the MyMemories software and created a fall background giving thanks with a picture of myself with my mom right after my very first chemotherapy treatment. I love my mom for being by my side every step of the way. Hope you all enjoy and be thankful for being ALIVE everyday!!!

Recipe: MyMemories Suite Software
Paper Pack: Fall Jamboree

  3. Great layout. I love the frame around your photo. It just pulled me right to the photo.

    And I am always thankful to wake up to live another day. My family history is that deaths come at an early age, between late 30s and early 40s) so I am always thankful for that extra day I am granted with my family. :)
