Farewell Picture

I am attending the funeral of my dear friend Raquel tomorrow.  I made a picture for her husband and wanted to do something for her sons, sister and mother.  I am posting them all here.

First is a digi image fro Doodle Pantry called SnowDrops.  I am entering this into this months challenge.

I was talking Raquels oldest son Cody and he mentioned that he loved her birth flower (January) called a SnowDrop. He said it wasn't a boring sunflower or such but it was this crazy flower that blooms in the winter and doesn't look all that spectacular until you see it opened and then WOW what a flower.  It was so touching I made a 5x7 with the Doodle Pantry image.

This image is from Aurora Wings colored with copics.  I made this one for her sister Kelly.  She is so beautiful and goes along with the butterflies that Raquel always loved. 


I made this picture for her mom.  The rose is from Aurora Wings, the sentiment is from Gina K Designs, and the writing is from Cornish Heritage Farms.  I colored it with copics.  It was for this weeks Technique Junkies Newsletter try that technique challenge, layered portions.


Last but not least it was hard to figure out to do for her youngest son Austin.  He is such a quiet kid and seems to hold his emotions inside so I had to come up with something on my own (with a little help from Raquel me thinks :))  I designed this one myself and colored it with copics.  I added the sentiment to make sure he knows his mom is smiling down on him


Tomorrow will be a very long and emotional day and I am hoping these small tokens will give my friends family some peace and something to cherish for years to come.

Love you guys!!!

Love Tricia

Goodbye To My Friend

It has been an emotional week for me and my friends, we lost our good friend Raquel to a brain aneurism.  She suffered 2 brain aneurisms in September of 2013.  We have watched her fight for 6 months for her 2 boys, her husband, family and friends.  She started at Tufts Medical Center and then transferred to Spaulding Rehabilitation and Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation center with her final stop at Merrimack Hospice.

On April 2, 2014 Raquel left this world with her loving family and friends surrounding her.  It was a sad but extremely peaceful and loving experience.  I will miss my friend but I know she is home with God and watching over each of us.

I made this image for her husband.  Raquel really loved butterflies and this image reminded me so much of her, he said the same thing when I gave it to him...

I am entering this into Aurora Wings - Anything Goes challenge.



Have a great day and hold your love ones close...life is short and needs to be celebrated every day.
