Craft Barn Quotes and Lyrics Challenge - No 3

 The words this time are "Strong" and or "Miss"
I chose "Miss" and have used some of the Lyrics from my Fav artist Darren Hayes

 Last week was the second anniversary of my sister passing away and it seemed very apt.
I have been grieving for SO long now it's just part of who I am. 24 yrs ago I went to my very first funeral aged 30 - lucky that I had not lost anyone so close before but it was the funeral of my three year old son. Since then , like most people my age , I have lost quite a few more dear family and friends.
My mum and dad and darling sister included. 
Please dont get me wrong , I am a happy and contented person and I value life so much ... Just sometimes...

 I used acyrilic paint for the background , along with ink splodges . It needed a heart so I used that gorgeous stampendous frantange embossing powder. I also went a little over the top with liquid pearls dots.

 The lyrics.

I also used a memory box stencil along the edge and a little glitter 
Hopefully the link below with take you to Darren Hayes's "miss you" you tube :)
