Challenge #11

Posted by The Design Experiment on 10:51 PM
This week our challenge prompt is from the Sweet and Thoughtful Collette:

Many things happen in our lives that are beyond our control. If you could go back and change the
course of one event in your life, what would you change and why?

Amazing challenge Collette!

Here are the X Team's Layouts:

Journaling: Life hasn't been easy for me as it has been for some.
At the age of fifteen, my Mother passed away. I was just a young girl who never had the chance to show her mom all that she would become.
When I was pregnant with my daughter Chloe, my Father passed away. She never had the chance to show him all that she would become.
My Son Alex passed away at the age of eleven. He was a bright young boy, loving life and all that it had to offer. He never had the chance to show the world all that he would become.
I would change the fact that the three people I loved the most were taken from me far too early in life. I would love to make that pain just disappear.

No Regrets By Leslie


You make your own true happiness. I truly believe that. I look back at my life - I think about the young me. I sit & wonder ~ Is there anything I'd change? I honestly can say no. So I didn't finish college. ~So I married & started my family young. ~ So I wasn't in the top of my high school ~it's all "OK" to me! I'm so happy with me. My life. Everything. I would NOT change one thing. Not a thing. I am complete. Happy - full of life. ~39 yrs. old - 4/08

Reverse Time
By Wendy


February 28, 2008 was a hard day for me. My Grandpa passed away that morning.
I hadn't seen him for probably 10 years. We are traveling to Maine in June and
part of our trip was to see him. This one thing I would change time for. I
t breaks
my heart to think I was so close to seeing him again. So close
to putting my arms
around him one more time. To tell him I loved him one more time. Time goes by
too fast. Tell the ones you love that you love them. Hug the ones that you can
everyday. Enjoy the time that you have with them, it can't be reversed.

I Have No Regrets
By Emily


Sure I'd put that cookie down, or go back and change that dumb thing I said.
But as for the big
stuff, that stuff that really counts? No way...I Have No Regrets.

Wish You Were Here
By Davinie


Steve, we should have done it.... after school was over we should have found a way to get you to England to travel with me for a week or two. Now we are married with children, have careers, a mortgage and a phone bill, scheduled vacations and a dog. We should have taken more time to explore the world while we were young and free, for I fear I'll be an old lady before the opportunity like a European vacation will be feasible again. It's an important lesson, to live life to the fullest and seize opportunities for adventure when you can. You never know what the future might hold.
