Challenge = to use your own handwriting in some areas of your layout

This is what my hand written journaling says:

In Loving Memory of Britt Lapthorne

My friend and close work companion Elke Lapthorne lost her daughter a year ago. My heart aches for the family, who still to this day have no answers as to what actually happened to their beautiful daughter.

Britt went missing while backpacking in Dubrovnik , Croatia in the early hours of September 18th 2008 after leaving club Feugo. After an exhaustive search, her body was found in the sea in the Bay of Boninovo on October 8th 2008, and several days later was returned home to Australia accompanied by her father and brother. She was 21 years old. There are many people grieving the loss of such a vibrant and happy girl.

Her case attracted widespread support and media attention both here in Australia and in Croatia.

Britt is survived by her parents Dale and Elke, brother Darren, boyfriend Simon, and many extended family members and friends.

She will be loved and remembered FOREVER.

Rest in Peace Beautiful Angel!!
