You Have My Heart

I have to say that I struggled with the colors this week at CSI.  My first thought was Christmas and I just didn't want to do a Christmas layout.  One of the journaling prompts was to write about motherhood.  I thought that would be the perfect thing to do.  I printed off one of my favorite photos of my kids and set off to find paper.   All during the week I would find something in the color scheme and set it aside as a possible element.  Oh, this cardstock is the dark red.  Here are some rub-ons in the light rose.  When I sat down to pull it all together, I found the green piece that is the background and just loved it!  It all fell into place after that.

For my evidence I used clouds, metal, and fabric.  The journaling is, as I said, about motherhood and reads: You two are the best kids!  I love being your mom.  You bring great joy into my life and an abundance of laughter.

The layout

You did awesome with this color scheme- and with creating a non-Christmas layout! Love the little cluster of butterflies/clouds :)~
