Today I managed to find time to create a layout inspired by the August Challenge. The challenge this month is a tribute to Debbie and all her hard work at Deer and Fawn. The challenge is to create a layout/card/art journal page about something you are thankful for and to incorporate flowers into this.
My layout is a personal one. It's a story about when my mum passed away, and how thankful I am to have been able to be there with her when it happened. It's about what a privilege it is to be a part of a moment like this.
I journalled quite a bit on this layout, so I tucked that into a pocket. Here's a bit more detail.
I chose to work with blues because this was mum's favourite colour. Here's another close up....
I love that scrapbooking is so personal for me. I've been really missing her lately, and finding the time to document my feelings really helps. When I look at this layout, although it makes me feel sad, it also makes me smile, as I now have something tangible that tells the story of how this moment made me feel.
I really enjoyed creating this one.....very therapeutic. I love that this challenge can be about something 'big', like mine, or it could be about something as simple as being thankful for your morning coffee!!
I look forward to seeing what you all do with this challenge......
