as i mentioned in the previous post, i am determined to finish the altered book i started for olivia so i knew that i had to tie the artwords "memories" into her book. this was easy because already there was a page marked for olivia's first friend brittney who died in 2005 from a brain tumor. ohhh, they were so close, like sisters. and i have a terrible fear that olivia will forget her, all the fun times they had playing and not so fun times in the hospital, all the things she taught us. i am afraid that i will forget and yet sometimes it is hard to even think of the last months.
the next altered book i begin will be for brittney and just for her and her friendship with olivia.
i am not really happy with the book spread i am submitting and i say this because it doesn't convey what i needed it to, it just doesn't seem special enough for such a special girl and i think maybe i need a whole book for that.
