All About Me Challenge. . .Wish

Here is my LO for the All About Me Challenge.  It's a little hard to see the detail. . .but, several of the circles and the blue heart are 'popped up' with foam square adhesive.  Also, the horizontal strip under the photo is folded back and forth. . .I think it turned out pretty cool.
I have to say, this is the first challenge on this site. . .and I am already in love!  I totally needed a prompt to push me into scrapping 'me', my feelings, and what i care most about.
Perfect example. .  is this layout. . .this is the first layout I have completed, that includes my son Chase, since he passed away 4 years and 17 days ago.  (Yes, I'm sobbing. . )  Talk about digging deep. . .Whew!
Here are a few other pictures of my LO:

Cardstock:  Bazzill

Adhesive:  Glue Dots & Scrapbook Adhesives
Other:  American Crafts Thickers (title), Bo Bunny Press (orange chipboard heart), ColorBox chalk ink, Sakura pen

Oh Lisa. What a fantastic layout. Not only is your journalling from the heart (and very moving) but you can tell from the colours you chose that you really do want to be happy and remember the good times. I'm sure that will come. Much love x

ooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh.... Lisa. This is amazing. Your journaling reached out and grabbed me in the deepest part of my heart. And then you used such joyful colors with the playful circles and that precious photo. Totally inspired. Thank you for sharing this.
