OK this challenge was a real ... challenge! Firstly I couldn't find any sad photos and secondly because I don't usually put so much on one page!
Still it was great fun and I now have a page specially for Scarlet to help her remember Bear Bear. I love the kit Michelle, what gorgeous colours and I totally adore the book. :cool:
Here's my entry:

Great LO FS!!!! I had a Cat take a Holiday!!!
GREAT PAGES LADIES......
FS, your layout really hit home....The things we do as parents that are so alike...lol....Awesome layout..and great idea!
Kimmy....same thing with you...I never thought my kids would get so old...and even though 15 and almost 20 isn't old to most...It is to me...I struglled so hard as a single parent most of my life...and swore that they would never get potty trained, or go to school, etc..and now look...lol...Doesn't take long...<wink> Gorgeous photo's too....
Linda...I love that photo...So innocent looking....Adorable layout....((HUGS))
Wolvsie, I was a single parent too.... Yes the Potty training thing was hard, because some baby sitters didn't want to deal with it, so it took longer than you would think it should. I just look back and Ask myself Where did the Time go. When I look at Khloie, I can see Stacey and and remember when Stacey did the same things, and it makes me go back in time in mind thoughts, because Khloie Looks Just Like her Mom!!!!
Here is Another Blues Moments.... I used Sepia on my Pictures, Because I put this in the Past, and Moved on..... I know its Corny, but Trust me, We are spoiled now days!!!! 2 weeks with out Phones, Computers, Lights and icebox..... You would want this time in the PAST TOO!!!!!!
I came across this poem this morning. I hadn't looked at it in a long time. I wrote it after watching the news report of the survivors of the Indonesian Tsunami, 2004. The outpouring of grief in their voices was almost too hard to bear. I made this page as a tribute to those people, and all the people who have suffered from similar acts of nature. There is no way I can comprehend, in my sheltered suburban life, the devastation those people endured. It is good for me to remember them and be thankful for my happy life.
Many blessings - FS xx
