I am submitting this layout to Creative Prompts for their Alphanumeric Heartbreak Challenge. When I saw the picture Alphanumeric Heartbreak it made me think of time which lead to how precious it is and it inspired this layout.
Layout : In a moment everything can Change
My youngest Edward had these spells where he would start turning blue and pass out. After several episodes we became worried and consulted the doctor. After a year of being told it was just an accident or we were miss-interpreting his spells (for what?) he had an episode so bad I nearly couldn't wake him. We were sent to a neurologist who had him go through, several tests. We received a call that he had shown activity in his eeg that lead them to believe he was having seizures. It was in that moment everything changed. We were uncertain how to handle the news and after reading thousands of articles on treatments we were even more uncertain about treatments and medications. We as parents decided not to medicate and continue with therapy. I couldn't accept the diagnosis, as a mother I felt I knew it was wrong but as a person I had no medical proof. We decided to ask for a second round of test to confirm the initial diagnosis as neither I nor Robert were satisfied with a vague answer. It was then we found out that the person who preformed the test incorrectly did something which lead to false readings. We continued our visits with the neurologist to monitor him and his spells, and eventually told he was holding his breath in fits of extreme emotions. He now still trys to hold his breath but is able to gasp the air enough to catch his breath.
Next up for your view pleasure are two layouts submitted to the Scrap Around the World Tour become a member of their message board to see all challenges and join in on the fun!!!
Layout #1 Destination India
( we were given photos of Indian Brides as inspiration)
"The way you look at me is ahhh..."
Challenge #2 Destination Ireland
we had to pick from a list of 10 of the most common Irish Proverbs and include a four leaf clover
I picked "Do not resent growing old, for many are denied the privilege"
This is a picture our dog Diamond's puppy Gucci, who after a series of unfortunate actions by several careless people lost his life.
We were supposed to include a four leaf clover somewhere in out layout, I thought seeing as though a four leaf clover is so hard to find rather than using a cut out of one I would mask one. I thought it was fitting for the piece, rather than showing luck, the absence of it.
Thanks for checking them out! Let me know what you think!
