Remembering Nicole (2 year Anniversary) & A FREEBIE QP

This is a post that is so hard to do because it marks the day two years ago that we lost my precious niece, Nicole Allen, in an accident caused by a drunk driver. If you read my profile you will see that she is my reason for scrapbooking. It was so senseless that she had to die at 21 years of age because someone thought they had the right to drive drunk. My heart is so heavy, it still feels like it just happened. I hope that everyone thinks twice or three times or more before they EVER get under the wheel of a vehicle under the influence. If you think it won't happen to you, you better think again. It's FOREVER that lives are changed! And for those of you who have also lost a loved one in the same way, my love and prayers go out to you. Sorry this is such a downer for those who just wanted to come and pick up a freebie QP but it is something that weighs heavy on my heart. Nicole's favorite colors were pink and black so I haved used my new (as of yet un-named) kit to make this tribute page for her. God bless you all!

Debbie, I feel much empathy for you losing your neice. The loss never goes away, but the only comfort I get is knowing I will see my departed loved ones again. It's so hard to lose someone you love, and even harder when it was caused by someone being careless. Keep the faith, and I believe Nicole received 'extra special' blessings because of the way she died. I'm sending some e-hugs for you. Warmly, Susie

I am so very sorry about your beautiful neice. I lost a neice 24 yrs. ago to teenagers who were drag racing & hit her head-on. My sweet Debra was 20 yrs. old. How senseless and tragic that people do such stupid things as drink & drive or think the roads are their playpens :o( Like your neice, mine was totally innocent & a victim of someone else's ignorance.

Thank you for the beautiful freebie. It will be perfect to scrap a picture of my neice as well. Hugz, Diane
