DigiDare 138

Life has its ups and downs, the happy moments, but also the sad ones. The ecstatic highs, and the painful lows. My dare this week is to scrap about those lows (emotional or physical pain).
Yes, you can do it. Think about what happened, how was your reaction to it and how did it affect you? Did it make you stronger or are you still coping with it.

-You can use a picture, or not. Use a stockphoto or something that symbolizes that pain.
-I want you to use your blending techniques. The papers, the elements, the picture, just blend something.
-Use the color that you associate with that pain.

urban sprinklers

HodgePodge_Summer Memories

~ journaling ~
summer in the city, street after street of rowhouses, temperatures of 100 degrees, cement sidewalks so hot you could fry an egg on them, literally... we had a playground, but no public swimming pool, sprinklers consisted of a hose with holes punched in it... on some of these sweltering afternoons, the fire hydrant would mysteriously be turned on to the squeals of delight from all of the kids in the neighborhood... by the time the fire department arrived to turn it off (usually a few hours later) we were all completely exhausted, and very happy! Great Summer Memories!

time just stood still, but that moment changed my life forever
vague memories of Bang, Ouch, and Jelly Doughnuts everywhere
and 7:45am on the digital clock on the dashboard
I lost the life known to me that day, but am content with the life I have now
