Thoughts of You


Thoughts of You

I would like to thank a very lovely commenter for suggesting that perhaps another picture would enhance this layout more than the one I had originally chosen.  She was right.  Thank you Di for your expert eye. So I decided to make this into a flip book to show my girls then and now.

This is my first time entering a Prima Build a Page sketch.  I used Prima; Mechanical, Micro Beads Berry.
My inspiration began with More than Words challenge this month using circles and the word Friend.
This is a picture of my daughters when they were young.  Though they now live far apart they still remain close friends.  The main circle are clocks which signify the passing of time.

I loved the idea of incorporating metallic colors to this layout as challenged by 7 Dots Studios .  I began by using
7 dots Studio Cold Country papers.  I used gold mica flakes which cascade down and over the page like rays of sunshine.
