#18 You Grow Without Me

These lovely children are my brothers and they live in South Africa,so I hardly ever see them....It was fun to journal on the flowers,cathartic I would say,because it is so difficult to read....my journaling basically says how I miss these 2 darlings,the little one I hardly know as he was not even one when we left!I have not felt these lovely souls grow ,I can't hold and hug them, we only get to see them via photos and Skype and hear them on the telephone...I also mention that they are growing into wonderful people!
I used the embossed numbers to show the passing years.
My twisted evidence is the orange ribbon and the bling on twisted wire...I used big flowers,I think the L.O. looks a little top heavy I was trying to compensate for the cropped head.....
My green embroidery thread is my leaves..I have also decorated the butterfly and the 3 little flowers with some bling.
More details on my blog.
