This Matters

Hi friends!
I'm completely in love with the palette of the latest case at CSI Color Stories Inspiration! Check it out and please play along!!
Isn't it gorgeous!?  Here is what I did with it this past week.

Scheme : All there
Evidence : stripes, polka dots, polaroid frames, pen work
Testimony : IW connect
Journalling on the back:
Over the past 3 weeks I've been able to 'disconnect' from who I was for the past 19 years and start connecting to and plugging into who I am gradually becoming.  It has been an epiphany of epic proportions and I am embracing it with my entire being.
Good things have happened; really good things that have drastically altered my mindset.  I'm in an incredibly happy, healing, peaceful state of mind and it is absolutely fantastic to have such an immense feeling of both freedom and elation.
It came as a surprise to me (a HUGE one) that I would get here not even six months after losing my beloved husband.  It really just goes to show how one positive event can change everything in a blink of an eye. 
Best of all, I know that Travers has my back through all the recent decisions I've made and changes I have gone through.  Truly, I feel as if I have metamorphosized. 
I am Butterfly.
Here are some close up shots.

I kept this piece completely simple and straightforward.

Thanks for popping in!

Carefree For A Day

Hey there,
I'm desperately behind on my blog posts!!  So much is going on in my life right now!!
Here is the latest sketch over at Let's Scrap:
And here is what I did with it:
My journaling is on the back.
When mommy met with Auntie Mel, daddy came through and said that I needed to do more with you; create more memories.  I thought that it would be a great idea to have a mommy-daughter photoshoot so that I can add more photographs of the two of us to the huge amount I already have displayed at home.  I needed to add more pictures of us - most of them are of daddy, or of you and daddy.
So, for a day, for those moments when we were on the shoot in the Majik Forest, we were totally carefree.  It was a great shoot and the photographs are magnificent.  You were a superstar throughout and I'm thrilled to have so many wonderful photographs of us (mostly because I have hardly any, always being the one behind the camera instead!!).
Daddy was definitely right there with us - there were feathers and butterflies galore!
Here are some close up shots of the LO.

The chippies were treated with gesso, gelato's and some embossing powder in places.
The circle is cut from embossed paper, which I sanded down here and there.

The title chippie has merely been inked in navy blue.

She is my HEART

My life seems to have run way, way ahead of me and I'm battling to catch up to many, many things I currently have on my plate.
I'll get there. In good time, I'll get there!!
Today I am (finally!) sharing with you, my take as DT on the current collaboration case over at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration.  The scheme is just divine and right up my alley, what with me being such a girly girl and all!
Here is what I did with the case.

Scheme : all there
Evidence : scallops, flower, hearts, wood, metal
Testimony : I used the IW Heart
I broke the word HEART into my journaling down as such:
Healing has come from you
Every time you smile, laugh, touch my face
All the affection you show
Rectifies and uplifts the sadness I carry within
Thank you for being my heart
Here are some close up shots:

Thanks for stopping by!
