Both TCR and CCG have gorgeous colour palettes this week, TCR with lilacs as main and CCG with a soft, pretty palette of pastels and PEARLS as product prompt. Just look at the yummie inspirational photo! "Mulberry Tea, Porcelain Pearl, Sugared Lilac and Blue Fairy Dust".
The UOAS 1 September challenge closes in about 2 days. Here's Nadia's wonderful sketch:
This time the journalling criteria is "A Memorable Year". The title must be a year, and you must journal at least 2 lines on why this year is memorable for you.
Pastels, pearls and a memorable year, there can only be one specific year that covers it all: 2000. It was a year of the greatest possible sorrow, but also one that ended in great joy. My mother gave up her battle against cancer and only a few months later, I met Bengt whom I married before the year had come to its end.
It was truly a year when one door closed in my face, but another one opened and beckoned me in.
So, without further ado, here's my page:
The blue paper is K&Co Watercolor Bouquet. I've also fussy cut flowers from the K&Co papers. The alphas are Prima and the stamped sentiment is Cloud9. The resin key hole is from Melissa Frances.
The scrunched ribbon/lace is MME Lost&Found 2. The little birds are cut-out from a Prima Pixie Dust paper. The music sheet overlay is KaiserCraft. Have to admit I've forgotten where the chippie frame/flourish is from as I had removed the wrapping, but I definitely know it's from Australia!
Some more Prima, this time Romantique (circle and square pieces of paper) and the triple layered cut-out b&w frames are Prima Printery Line. Prima bling and some liquid pearls.
The lilac flower has more sugar to it than its colour, it's sprinkled in glitter too. The creamy/yellow one is KaiserCraft and what looks like fuchsia here, is actually a dark mulberry colour. The conditions were not the best for evening photographing, sorry about that.
That's it folks! Thank you ever so much for your visit and for any beautiful comment!
Have a great rest of the week! xoxoxox Eila
