I am in vacations this week, with my familly. A change in my routine, as well as a change of place. We go to a place that has a heavy meaning for me, as it was where we were supposed to go when Emma was hospitalized for the first time. I still hear her screaming and crying when I told her we had to cancel because she needed to stay longer at the hospital… We never could come back. So it’s the first time I come here since that day… And I really feel a change in the way I see this place. Her not being here is a part of it, of course, but I decided to take it as it comes, and to do everything I do in her memory, as she would have wanted me to do. So I went to the aquarium with my familly, with a goal: seeing ‘grandpa’s fish’ as she named it when she came here with my parents years ago. She told me about this fish so many times, describing it to me, telling me what a blast it was to see her grand father’s face when she dedicated this fish to him. So I went to the aquarium, and met grandpa’s fish. And I could almost hear her laugh as she would have done if she was here to show it to me.
This place and time could have been sad and heavy. But I decided to live them as a token of my love to her, and it changed everything.
So this week, we try to see things a different way, to experiment this sweet feeling.

Here are the rules of the challenge:
- Each thursday, I’ll give you a quote and a pattern to play with. You can use both, you can use only one of them, it’s up to you.
- You have till the next wednesday to make your card and share it with us in the facebook group (just ask to be added, and I will open the doors wide open to you )
- The goal of this challenge it just to offer yourself a time to have fun with pens and cards, to ponder on words, to enjoy a ME time. We tend to forget about ourselves so easily! And sharing is such a beautiful thing to experiment in our life!
And here is my card: ( I love the drape effect because of the painting!)
