Urban Scrapbook November Monthly Challenge

I can't believe November is almost half over!  It's seems like it was just Halloween.  Here is my Urban Scrapbook's November Monthly Challenge layout:

It's sad, how in a few short months, life has changed so much for my parents.  We were being silly taking photos with my phone in August and since then, my dad's health has declined so much.  He had to be placed in an extended care centre last week and most of the time I don't think he knows who we are.  It's been hard on my mom and the rest of our family, just getting used to this outgoing and independent person disappearing.  It's those spontaneous and silly photos I will cherish the most, remembering the laughs and good times.

The papers and embellishments in the kit were from Simple Stories Legacy collection.  I used Wendy Vecchi's Crackle paint (love this crackle paint!), Prima's Stone Wall Stencil, Tim Holtz Distress Stain Sprays.

Check out what the rest of the design team did here.

Thanks for stopping by,

Ohhhhhhhhh, Jan. This is just absolutely beautiful. There's nothing on it that I just don't love. Stay strong - I know this is a difficult phase right now.

brought tears to my eyes having nursed my mom though Alzheimer's. Cherish whatever moments you have Jan. Your piece is gorgeous and a testament of love for your parent.
