me me me right now

this was for a challenge on tallyscrapper. the new year is bringing new management, and with it, new scrappers to get to know. the challenge was an 'about me' challenge.. mine took on a turn even i didn't see coming.

Edited to add: I am also submitting this layout to the SIF blog. My friend Christine is re-launching her beautiful challenge site, Scrap it forward. Come check it out.. she has great challenges.

Journaling reads: I'm 34. Born in July. i love liver & onions. I'm married to Doug. He loves me unconditionally. I'm lucky 2 have him. together => we have 3 fabulous, smart, witty, gorgeous children. My mom was my BFF. I lost her 11/30/10 unexpectedly. My heart is like a canyon.. ripped and torn right now... grieving the loss of my only parent. Dark. Trying to smile daily. to keep moving forward. Because whenever i hear/see anyone ask about wHo i am -> i think of my mom. so today 1/23/11. I'm an only child grieving the loss of her mom... and yet, still trying to be a good/great mama to her own younglings. Today... right now I'm sad... yet hopeful.
