Recipe challenge over at

Here's my layout, for sketches by tamarafor my journaling I will warn you that some of you might be put off by it, but this is what happened and scrapping is not only about the good. I feel that my future nieces & nephews, grandkids should know what really happened in their ancestry. KWIM
So I apologize ahead of time if this has offened you. My journaling is on the tag!

D, you are so brave and wonderful. I know it must be difficult but hopefully theraputic to put these things into words.

I love you!

Wow Dolores, what an amazing break through! I am so proud of you and it is NOT offensive it is WONDERFUL you feel strong enough to share your story.
What an amazing person you are and this is just beautiful.
I know it comes in spurts and weird places. Half my childhood is completely forgotten due to abuse.
I am sorry you had to endure this and I do understand. I think the scrapping is an amazing way to share your journey.
((big hugs)) Hang in there girl.

D, this page is gorgeous - I know the emotions behind it are not, but you've proven again that you are a survivor. Praying for your peace and healing.
