OUAS~ Once Is Enough


     Hello everyone Charllie here again with a new layout to share which portray Life . This layout help  me to express the feeling of happiness and sadness .  I wish I could do a tutorial in  making this layout but I can't due to busy days .  I'm really sorry guys to say that  these "busy days" are those days I'm with Dad in the hospital. last Tuesday  Dad passed away and I felt terrible and depressed on this day . So I stop  crying and I created a layout for him ( actually I created a mixed-media layout but I will post it later due to not editing the photos )

   Okay , This layout was made before Dad had passed  but I guess it's  message relates on what happen when Dad died. Okay no time to waste here is it:

 ONCE IS ENOUGH (journaling)
                   Life is just a borrowed thing !!God gave us life to experience it once , if he gave you  a 2nd chance ,do it right do it good like what my Dad did. He suffered from Trauma after he experienced Hold-up and shot by gun but he was saved by a pendant in his heart which  there is a picture of Mary and Christ!! Life is not long it is short , few of those "chosen one " or  people gave a second chance in life . We often don't mind it and don't take the step to do it right . Dad did after he died he showed us  how great he is and how we are so lucky to have him ... I know life is too short for him but I guess God took him because his mission was finished and  he Did the right thing . So for you guys remember that if God have give you another chance to live , Take it and do it right for  life happens ONCE   ,and ONCE IS ENOUGH !!
