I recently participated in our local Relay For Life.
After months of planning and fundraising to raise money for Cancer Council, it was here.
A weekend where so many come together to 'fight' against this awful disease; to support those who are battling or are survivors; to remember those we have lost.
An amazing emotional, uplifting but exhausting weekend!
This layout is about that walk around the track, in those wee hours (between 1 am and 5am). A moment I will never forget.....walking with just a few.....feeling tired.....in pain.....surrounded by beautiful candlelit messages that inspire and help you push through.....your mind filling with thoughts and memories. Even in the moments when I was alone, I never really felt alone. It was powerful and whenever I think back, I get goosebumps.
This page started as most of mine do.....grabbing a base page, and then shuffling around with whatever is on my desk. The torn strips I added to the top and bottom of the layout, is a great way to use up some of your scraps.
