In this journey called life, we are sometimes fortunate to cross paths with what I like to think of are life altering beings. Beings that change us for the better, that leave that imprint on our lives, and make us strive to be better. A better person, a better friend, a better partner, and sometimes for caregivers like myself a better nurse. This project that I'm sharing with you today is extra special in that it represents one of those special beings. This person was a nurse mentor to many. She was one of those people whom left a forever impact on myself, as a person and as a nurse. She left us for her journey to heaven in 2010. It was just over two weeks before loosing my father that we lost her. I will never be able to dissociate the two as it was such a painful time, losing two special people so close together. Anyhow, when I was asked to create a ballot box for her "Memorial Award" I was more than honoured. She will always hold a special place in my heart, and I can only dream that one day I will be as great as she.
I chose to put a few of my favourite retired Stampin' Up goodies to use for this project. These flowers were a new technique for me. My fringe scissors sped up the process of course! I might just have to create a tutorial for them as they were super fun and easy to make. I can't wait to see this box fill up with ballots containing names of all the amazing nominees whom I am blessed to call my co-workers.

Thanks for stopping by, and maybe try and take a moment today to reminisce on how someone you know has inspired you to be better. I'm sure there are a few remarkable beings on your list.
