" Remember the Moment "

Hi there,
today I combined 2 challenges to create this beautiful page. The first challenge I took inspiration from was CSI. (Color,Stories and Inspiration).
When I saw the awesome colour combination all I could think of was a  a vintage page ago. I don't often do vintage but I think that this one is lovely. The three young girls in the page are my Mum and her 2 older sisters. My Mum is 86 now and she is the little on sitting on the beautiful chair so this photo was taken many years ago. One of her sisters is still alive and she is now 92 but unfortunately the other one has passed. I have so many amazing memories of these women that are very personal so I have hidden my journaling behind the photo. You can see the pegs to the right of the photo, that's where my stories and memories are of them , just for me to see and reflect on.
The second challenge came from Once Upon a Sketch.. I tried to follow the layout of my page as best as I could using the sketch.




THE SCENE; All colours were used in this layout. Grape, pale pink, white, light orange and pale yellow.
EVIDENCE;use (2) I used butterflies,glitter,stamps,wings (on the butterflies)ruffle (lace around the picture),


TESTIMONY; This is the part that I always struggle with as I find journaling so hard. This time it was fun for me. I saw on some of the Design Team members layouts that they had hidden their private stories behind photos so I decided that this is what I was going to do. I made three tags, one for each and on them I wrote their dates of birth but I also added some of my beautiful childhood memories of my Mum and my Aunties on the tags. Rather than pieces of string I put glittered pegs on them so they can be pulled out at a later date to read my memories.








 



These are the 2 challenges that I was inspired by. The colour palette is from CSI and the layout from Once upon a Sketch


Thanks for stopping by
keep smiling
