I'm Still Standing

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers out there in bloggy land :) I pray that it is a beautiful day for you all.
Today is a new weekly challenge over at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges, the monthly theme is All About Photos and this week's challenge is Vintage! Dig out those Sepia, Black & White photos, can be current or old. My photos are in the 1970's era, my sister's wedding:
My sister's wedding I was the flower girl. This was made during LOAD515 and the prompt for Day 13 was Musical Inspiration: Elton John. I recently had heard this song and thought immediately of my sister. For all the things given to people, myself included, there are those amazing ones out there! and to me she is one of them.
 My journaling tells of her disease and of her ongoing battle she has never faltered. This girl no matter what happens always has a smile on her face and is always cheerful. Her marriage didn't work out due to her disease (to put it kindly) there were other reasons too.
 I was blessed to have this picture saved during the Ivan flood in 2004 and so glad I had a chance to use it for this layout. Lots of sequins added to the layout.
The original picture of my sister and her ex coming down the aisle.
 My title work for the layout. Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you join us this month for these fun challenges
